Released in 2009, James Cameron’s AVATAR is the highest-grossing film in motion picture history, with a box office gross of nearly $2.8 billion.  Mesmerizing all ages across the globe with its otherworldly visuals and groundbreaking special effects, the film quickly became a worldwide phenomenon so popular it will be followed by four sequels, with the first sequel due for release on December 18, 2020.  AVATAR was named best picture at the Golden Globe Awards and won numerous Oscars.

The dynamic guest experience will allow visitors to:

  • Enter an exhibition curated by the Pandoran Research Foundation where they will leave the 21st century behind and step into the 22nd century world of the AVATAR franchise;
  • Learn about space travel and the science behind the discovery of Pandora in the Alpha Centauri solar system;
  • Explore recreations of Pandora’s most compelling environments showcasing its unique plants and animals and what they can teach us about our own planet;
  • Engage in interactive activities based on the culture, language and music of the Na’vi, the nine-foot-plus-tall humanoids who are the indigenous people of Pandora;
  • Experience the jewel-like glow of Pandora’s bioluminescent plants and animals;
  • Interact with banshees, learn to operate an AMP suit, picture themselves as part of the Avatar Program;
  • And more!

“Learning more about Pandora can inspire us to be even more curious and thoughtful about our own planet,” said Kathy Franklin, president of franchise development at Lightstorm Entertainment. “With this exhibition we hope to give guests a unique, engaging experience that helps them see the world in new ways.”

"The Beach" in Central Embassy

Central Embassy is temporary home to an interactive art display called “The Beach.” At this amazing indoor beach, you can play ball in the middle of the high-end mall without anybody looking at you funny or complaining. The Beach has been designed by Snarkitecture, a New York-based collaborative consisting of the three artists Daniel Arsham, Alex Mustonen and Benjamin Porto. Coming from the United States, The Beach premiered in Washington D.C in 2015 in an exhibition together with the National Building Museum. Before coming to Bangkok, the installation was shown in Florida and Sydney.

When it was first showcased in Washington D.C., "The Beach" contained 1.000.000 almost transparent, antimicrobial plastic balls. In Bangkok the installation is not as big as space is limited and features only about 300,000 balls. The balls are of course recyclable and are cleaned each time before being reused. We know, it tickles every time you walk passed an IKEA ball-pit. So take the chance and jump into "The Beach" without being judged!

Sit on "The Beach" without getting roasted by the sun and enjoy the air-condition. You will not be required to buy a swim suit, but you need to pay 50 Baht for a pair of socks for hygiene reasons. Generally entry is free, there are also free lockers for your bags and stuff. See you later at "The Beach"!

Naval Museum

Welcome aboard! The Naval Museum is located just a few Kilometer down Sukhumvit Road after passing the Bangna Intersection in close proximity to the Erawan Museum. As the name already suggest, the Naval Museum is where you'll find an interesting collection of Navy exhibits inlcuding weapons and firearms that have been used in the Navy since the early Rattanakosin period. One of the Highlights welcomes you already right in front of the entrance: the H.T.M.S Machanu, Thailands first Submarine. Well, at least its tower with a mighty cannon.
