) is a new edutainment museum dedicated to, you guessed it, Thailand’s rubber production.
Located inside Central Pattaya on Sukhumvit Road, the 4,400-sq-meter space consists of four main zones, including The Plantation, a simulation of a rubber forest using 3D projection mapping; The Factory, which documents the creation of latex through various industrial processes; Rubber in Life Zone, where you will find giant-size versions of everyday rubber items; and Rubber Fantasy, whose spiral slide and other attractions add a bit of fun to proceedings.
The B300-million museum is currently offering free entrance for Thais until Sep 30. The normal rate is B100 for Thais and B200 for foreigners.
