The Thai Press Museum traces the development of the press and journalism from the times of absolute monarchy to the present day through exhibits with wax models working on them.
See the evolution of printing equipment and tools, from individual wooden blocks of letters used by typesetters to modern computerized machines. On display are old newspaper cartoons and caricatures, black and white photos and clippings of major historical events showcasing the role of the press in Thai society and economy. A highlight of this exhibition is the recreation of an editorial department of a newspaper, with wax figures of an owner and editor, a reporter and a typesetter working with old-style equipment.
