The Siriraj Medical Museum, nicknamed the Museum of Death, is a medical museum in Bangkok, Thailand. It is located in the Siriraj Hospital and consists of several medical museums on the site including the Forensic Medicine Museum. The museum is open to the public, and is a valuable resource for both medical professionals and laymen.
Located at the Siriraj Hospital, it has a large collection of important specimens related to the modern history of medicine in Thailand. The museum contains six permanent exhibits, plus a temporary exhibit. The six sections with permanent exhibits address the following fields:
- Congenital disorders
- Forensic pathology
- Thai traditional medicine
In 2008, the temporary exhibit featured the role of Siriraj Hospital faculty during the 2004 tsunami that devastated the coasts of Thailand and other countries.
In the forensic medicine section of the Siriraj Medical Museum, there is on display the mummified remains of the first serial killer in the modern history of Thailand, Si Ouey Sae Urng, mistakenly romanized to "Si Quey" (the sae is the Thai signifier of a Chinese clan name, in this case Urng). Si Quey was a cannibal serial killer who preyed on children and was active in the 1950s. He was convicted and executed, then mummified and put on display as a deterrent against violent crime. There are also displays of skulls and other body parts in glass cases, many of them victims of murder by various means.
