GIT Gem and Jewelry Museum in Silom

Part of the Gem and Jewelry Institute of Thailand in ITF tower. https://www.git.or.th/museum_information_en.html

Mon - Fri: 09:30 - 17:00 Foreign tourist: 200 Baht  Thai citizen: 80 Baht  Student: 20 Baht Child under 6 & senior citizens: Free 

I got in with Muse Pass which costs 199 THB and gives entry to 56 museums all over Thailand. I spent over an hour and there were no other visitors.

Main entrance on Silom road (in north-eastern corner of intersection with Narathiwat-Ratchanakarin road):
