Official description

Museum Siam will be open until late into the night to give visitors the opportunity to explore stories about giants from around the world, on Dec 19-21.

The “Night at the Museum 5: Awakening the Legend of Giant” fair will showcase replicas of well-known giants from many countries including Cyclops and Talos from Greek mythology and the demon Oni from Japanese folklore.

The myth of yaksha (guardian giants) in Thai culture will be recounted in the form of a street show-style performance at the “Yak Cute!” booth.

The “Like a Yak!” exhibition will match certain yakshas from the Ramayana epic with the world’s extraordinary figures, including Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Leonardo da Vinci.

“The Spirit of Giant”, a light and sound show directed by Nikorn Saetang from Theatre 8x8, will run daily at 8pm.

It portrays the famous legend of the battle between the yaksha guardians of the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and Wat Phra Chettuphon (Wat Pho).

There will also be three talks by inspirational speakers — TV host and writer Wannasingh Prasertkul, on Dec 19; Tachaya Pratumwan (Keng The Voice), on Dec 20; and Jiradt Pornpanitphan, founder of Cheeze magazine, on Dec 21.

The talks start at 7pm.

The fair is also a chance to sample various foods, including giant-sized meatballs and Thai fish cakes (thod man).

The fair will run daily, from 4pm to 10pm. Museum Siam is on Sanam Chai Road.

There is no admission fee.
