One of the interesting things about the forensic and anatomical museums of Bangkok is the display choices that have been made under the guise of preserving objects for research. For example, the postcard sized strips of human skin with tattoos from a multiple homicide. Fascinating, but not really necessary for medical research…..
A small number of the preserved corpses of children have become known as places where toys are left by visitors to appease the spirits that surely linger nearby (see the video clip).
One modest display of particular interest was of the tools and instruments used during the autopsy of King Rama VIII.
