The Bangkok Corrections Museum is located on the site of a former maximum security Bangkok Remand Prison built in 1890 during the reign of King Rama V. Most of it has been torn down and turned into a public park, but three blocks, a cellblock, a side of the prison wall and two watchtowers were preserved and turned into a museum. It exhibits photographs and models of the old prison, torture weapons along with wax models depicting execution scenes. Furniture and crafts made by the prison inmates are also on display. The museum can only be visited after making an appointment, but some punishment instruments can be seen from the public park outside, so you don't necessarily need to enter the museum.
