So on our first night in Thailand, we decided we want to see a museum. Yeah, I know it’s kind of a foolish idea to even think to go to the museum beyond 6pm, unless they have a special event or a gala. But not in Thailand I guess, as the TCDC is open until 9pm and is inside a mall. How cool is that!
The Emporium is an upscale mall/department store along Sukhumvit
The exhibit when we visited was all about the history of design around the world! It was lovely walking through collections of some of the design world’s greatest inventions.
Tamagotchi is the forefather of Nintendogs and other pet-based game. Japan, you rock! And oh, I heard the app is coming to iOS soon?
The TCDC in Thailand has a library of design archives. I guess students in the creative field, or maybe hobbyists will benefit from this.
The icing on the cake is the The Shop @ TCDC! Seriously, this museum shop has got to be the awesomest that I’ve ever seen! It’s full of quirky stuff (that you prolly won’t need, but will make you buy!) from Thai designers to others from around the world! I had fun just looking at the various collections, I don’t know maybe spent 1-2 hours just looking. at. everything. So pretty aka this space trumps any other high end shops for me!
I wish there are more museums like this.
