Jesada Technik Museum

While wandering around Siam Paragon waiting for a film premier, I found a display of what I thought were toy cars. They turned out to be some of Thai businessman Jesada Dejsakulrit's antique cars.

The decade-old collection of practically all means of transport includes "a helicopter, a London Bus, and very soon it will have a Russian-made U194 submarine." Mr Jesada enthuses, "apart from rare cars, I began accumulating other means of transportation such as boats and airplanes. At the time being we have about 400 cars, including an assortment of old tricycles from all corners of the globe; military and commercial aircrafts and land vehicles, and a whiskey-class submarine coming in from Sweden."

According to an online source, Mr Jesada conceptualized Thailand's very first museum of exotic cars after a trip to Hanover, Germany, famous for the Bubble car. He wants to 'offer school children the opportunity to see these rare and exotic vehicles' up close. Bless his heart. He even reportedly gives them free lunch.

These photos are from my old blog, and this post is not in any way associated with Jesada Technik. But in case you fancy a visit, the museum is located on 100 Moo 2, Tummason Rd, Ngio Rai, Nakhon Chaisi, Nakhonpathom 73120. It is open Tuesday to Saturday, from 9:00 - 16:00.

  10. It's a shame they don't make cars like any of these any more. I like the green car just for the novelty of it

  17. Great looking cars. Mr. Jesada Dejsakulrit must be a very rich man to have those collection of airplanes and boats. Good for him to give back by putting up the museum for the children.
