Siriraj medical Museum: Freaky Forensics and Deathly screens

final Destination. It was the first thing that entered my head as soon as I stepped into the Forensic Pathology section of Siriraj medical Museum. The wall ideal after the entrance screens images and body parts of victims who died horrible, horrible deaths — from brutal murders to freak accidents. but as one adage goes, it was just the idea of the iceberg. As these pictures and specimens ushered me deeper into the place, I was taken on a ride into a world that reminded me of the genres of motion pictures that I have loved so much — forensic, detective, suspense, and above all, gore. The only difference was, all these happened in real-life. and that’s what makes it a lot more horrifying.

The museum of Death

Also known as the museum of Death, the Siriraj medical museum is a paradise for those into dark tourism. operated by Siriraj Hospital, the first Western medical center in Thailand, it homes a substantial collection of artifacts gathered in the 120 years of the hospital’s existence and service as a pioneer in the medical field in the country. These artifacts are showcased in six separate permanent exhibits inside the museum namely:

Prehistoric museum & Laboratory

Congdon Anatomical Museum

Parasitology Museum

Songkran Niyomsane Forensic medicine Museum

Ellis Pathological Museum

Thai standard medicine Museum

My three favorite sections are Forensic Pathology, Congenital Disorders, and Parasitology. In fact, I barely remember anything about the other exhibits anymore, but these three stuck with me and haunted me even a few weeks after my visit. even when I was already in Laos, I still could not stop thinking about it.

The reception area of the museum

ماذا يوجد في الداخل

Unfortunately, photography is not enabled inside. I wish I could post the hair-raising specimens exhibited at the museum, but I didn’t want to break the rules. but do a quick Google image search so you have an idea of what to expect inside.

One of the most significant “items” on display in the Forensic Pathology section is the mummified body of Si Ouey Sae Urng (Si Quey), Thailand’s Hannibal Lecter. Regarded by lots of as modern Thailand’s first serial killer, Si Quey was a cannibal who victimized children in the 1950s. He was carried out and his stays have considering that been kept at the hospital.

In another corner is an exhibit highlighting the role of Siriraj healthcare facility in the rescue and recovery operations during the catastrophic Asian tsunami in 2001.

The Congenital Disorders area was the second area I explored. The place is small but packed with preserved stays of babies. a lot of of them are conjoined or deformed. It was probably the saddest corner of the whole museum. It was depressing to realize that these babies were not given enough time to live and experience the world more.

The Parasitology section was the end of the line for me. كان أكثر من اللازم. I felt like if I stayed a little bit longer at the place, I wouldn’t feel comfortable eating anything anymore. The designs were so sensible and it made me wonder just how much parasites I have now in my body and whether they were harmful. In the middle of the site was an massive 75m-wide scrotum (yep, scrotum), dissected from an elephantiasis victim.

Yes, the museum is shocking and gory and can give Ripley’s a run for its money, but it is also highly educational. The artifacts are provided in a way that guests can pick up something. For example, they did not just put the gigantic scrotum on display; before you reach it, you will be bombarded first by information on how one falls victim to these parasites. another good example is the preserved head pierced by a gunshot. The head is halved vertically that visitors can take a look at the path of the bullet until it exited the head. While I do not recommend it to kids, I believe adults, especially those who are fans of gore and crime literature and studies, would definitely take pleasure in the terror that lives in this building.

The place is a combination of the most scary motion pictures and TV shows I had seen. There’s a big serving of CSI and a sprinkle of Silence of the Lambs. and yes, final Destination, too. Coincidentally, this was my final destination, my last stop in Bangkok. I walked out of that horror house absolutely bothered. It was undoubtedly a seriously disturbing experience but weirdly enlightening.

Later that day, I would be boarding an overnight train to Chiang Mai. I was alone in my cabin and all I could do was sleep. At one point I had a horrible nightmare. guess what it was about.
