Visiting historical parks and museums may well have been boring in the past. Well, not any more. Visitors cannot only look at ruins of palaces and temples or ancient artefacts, but they can also have fun learning about the history from well-trained guides and multimedia presentations, share opinions, ask questions, and grasp what the old sites were like in ancient times.
Certain historical parks, like Sukhothai, Si Satchanalai and Kamphaeng Phet, even boast signs showing the ancient sites reconstructed by a team of academics. At various national museums, modern presentations and technologies have been applied to make the display of ancient artefacts more interesting.

He first took them to tour the information centre, equipped with a lot of models and multimedia displays, with one of the highlights being a small glass box featuring a simulated bicycle tour of a few teenagers in the park. Later, he led the visitors to a buggy car to ride and explore the ruins of some temples within the park.
