Anyone interested in forensic curiosities will be intrigued by the unique Bangkok Forensic Museum, a one of a kind establishment which displays many exhibits that may be seen nowhere else. Visitors to the Thai capital seeking a quality Bangkok resort will find an excellent choice in the Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa. This attractive accommodation offers well-furnished rooms and gracious hospitality.
The Bangkok Forensic Museum is not for the very faint of heart. Rather than pretty or aesthetically pleasing displays you will find genuine forensic novelties here. This institution is housed within the Siriraj Hospital, and attracts a steady stream of visitors.
The first exhibition chamber displays numerous examples of infants affected by various genetic abnormalities. Preserved within containers of formaldehyde the visitor will see many unusual and bizarre exhibits here. Another fascinating chamber describes the various parasites that can afflict human beings, including details of their origins and the effect that they can have on the various organs of the human body. Here you will see specimens such as extraordinarily large tapeworms and the 35 kg testicle of an individual affected by elephantiasis.
In another room you will see the preserved bodies of victims of accidents as well as those of a number of murderers. Most prominent amongst the latter is a disturbed serial killer from the 1950s who killed and consumed the bodies of children. According to the authorities of the museum the purpose of displaying these specimens is as a warning against conducting such heinous crimes.
In the next building you will see innumerable skeletons within wood-and-glass cabinets. The visitor will also find a multitude of examples of genetic aberrations within jars of formaldehyde. Visitors will also observe many exhibits of malformed foetuses and babies in the exhibits of this building. Although some of the exhibits in the Bangkok Forensic Museum seem rather gruesome, nevertheless these exhibits do draw the attention of the visitor as you will probably not see their like anywhere else in the world.
