Siriraj Medical Museum
Located in the Siriraj Hospital are six distinct museums in two separate buildings. The notable displays are mummified remains of the first known serial killer in modern Thai history, Si Ouey Sae Urng. He was said to be a cannibal, eating kids in the 1950s. The body standing in the booth is supposed to be a deterrent against such violent crimes. Another museum has a room dedicated to all kinds of parasites. There is a human testicle affected by elephantiasis weighing 35 kilos. Not a sight for the faint of heart. Another museum has babies affected by genetic disorders preserved in formaldehyde. Though I was looking forward to this part of the trip, I couldn't save myself from the frowns of my relatives.
