Information

Founded in 2013, with the collaboration between the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Ratchasuda College, Mahidol University and The Bangkok School for the Blind, Foundation for the Blind for Thailand under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand, the museum expected to mark the Birthday Anniversary of the H.M. The Queen on 12 August 2013. 

 

Uniquely designed to cater to the needs of either normally sighted people or those with visual impairment, visitors will equally enjoy the exhibition through “touching”. Visitors who are deaf will realise the beauty of Her Majesty The Queen through the imitated Ceres coin, along with the music specially composed to honour the royal grace of Her Majesty The Queen by which has been well proven to the world.          

 

In regard to viewing the exhibition, the officer will assign 2-4 visitors per session, which is divided into 2 viewing lines, in order to allow each visitor to learn about the exhibits in each base within predetermined time. Each session takes 40 minutes. All visitors will receive an audio guide to listen to descriptions of each base, which are automatically running with a notification of viewing guidelines specifying time limit for each base. Descriptions are created to be easily comprehended for everyone. Starting from understanding the direction of viewing, a visitor will be guided through the railing installed along the way. Once arrived at each base, a sign will be apparent for the visitor to touch and stop walking. The exhibition is divided into 8 bases, covering the medication and basic self-care.

 

Base 1 “Eye and Sighting” portrays the visual system via a large-sized eyeball for visitors to touch, along with the audio that explains the elements within an eye, lens, retina, blood vessels and optic nerves, with the aim to assist the understanding of our visual system.

 

Base 2 “Have you self-examined your breasts today?” lets visitors ask themselves as they learn about normal appearance, as well as abnormal appearance of the breasts. At Base 2, breast cancer, both found in male and female, is explained. Interestingly, breast check-up is available for visitors to try on a simulated model to examine abnormalities of the breasts. The trial is highly beneficial for everyone as it can be adapted with one’s own body and is considered a preliminary self-examination.    

     

Base 3 “Balloon, The life-saving air ball” explains the respiratory system and the importance of the heart that pumps blood to nurture the body. If the heart fails to pump blood throughout the body, a balloon pump must be inserted in order to enable normal functioning.  

 

Base 4 “I have a stomachache. What’s really happening to me?” allows visitors to learn what elements there are in the abdomen, how each looks like and what do different positions of abdominal pain mean in terms of abnormality of particular organs. Base 4 will enable visitors to learn what really causes pain in their abdomen.

 

Base 5 “When I have grown from a girl to a woman” features the simulation of genital organ of teenage female that explains changes of a teenage girl, ranging from the occurrence of menstruation to physical transformation. The audio guide will describe the usage of intrauterine device for birth control, along with a model for visitors to examine whether the device is correctly placed. Interestingly, the explanation includes guidance on how teenage girls should behave, what appropriate intimate hygiene is, as well as moral practice for teenage girls.

 

Base 6 “When I have grown from a boy to a man” features the simulation of genital organ of teenage male that explains physical transformation of a teenage boy. In addition, the exhibition portrays the right way to use a condom to ensure correct birth control. There is also a tactful teaching on how to treat a woman and what appropriate intimate hygiene should be.      

 

Base 7 “Knee Replacement Operation” features the explanation on the function of bone marrow and joints. There is a simulation of joints and bones for visitors to touch, as well as how deteriorated ones are like. Exhibition on knee replacement operation will explain the appearance of the system and how it works with regard to enhance the understanding of visitors.  

 

Base 8 “Drug Labels for You” explains the correct way to use drugs to cure general illness. There are also drug labels for people with visual impairment and the hard-of-sighting elderly. Invented by Siriraj Hospital for internal testing, punching and stapling have been adapted in accordance with personal drug use timetable and the amount of drugs prescribed by the doctor. The method represents adaptability of items used in our everyday life for which well suit the blind because they might not be able to use drugs properly without assistance.

Important / Interesting artifacts

Eight bases were created to educate visitors with a variety of knowledge on “Traditional Thai Medicine and Thai Tourism”. Visitors will experience the beauty of The Royal Barge Suphannahong and learn about Traditional Thai Medicine at Thai Herb Base whereby traditional herbs are available for touching and smelling, along with listening to information from an audio guide. Apart from the exhibition for the blind, the museum has facilitated the learning of the deaf. An array of useful knowledge has been presented via videos with translation by a sign language interpreter. The museum has hence minimised the limitation in visiting museums for people with visual and hearing impairments, whereas general public can also enjoy learning and touching the artifacts.
