The Ways of Water Museum (Chaloem Phra Kiat Building 6)
It demonstrates the critical nature of water sources to those who depend on them. This illustrates HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great's approach to water management through a range of water forms, from mountain to sea (e.g. major run-off and floods, insufficient water and drought, and contaminated water). The Monkey Cheeks project involves the conservation of water by reservoirs along natural rivers and canals is an example of a Royal Project initiated by HM King. These reservoirs, which are constructed along the coastline, are used to store fresh water that would otherwise flow into the sea. There are animated 4D films available with 270-degree viewing.
1) Water gives life to all beings on Earth.
The streams that flow from the mountains to the sea are composed of several large streams and tributaries that eventually merge to form the main river. Water sources are required to maintain sustainable agriculture, which has historically provided food for families and communities.
2) The Way of Water: 4D Theatre, 270-degree view.
Join a river adventure with the little otter, beginning from upstream to downstream. Discover what is going on throughout the river and understand how water gives life to all living creatures. The river is essentially a water source, just like a mother who creates life. Water is essential for life. Living beings in the forest rely on natural water sources to survive and thrive. Excess water flowing downstream from the mountain tops, across the river plains eventually reaching the sea. Rivers provide irrigation to agricultural crops and access to fishing for communities living along the river banks.
3) Water is life.
Water is a precious natural resource. It has sustained and supported life on Earth for all living beings. Learning about existing sustainable water management practices is vital to safeguarding our natural resources for the long term.
4) Follow in the Father’s Footsteps of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great.
HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great has undertaken Royal initiatives on water management. HM visited his people in all 4 regions of Thailand. There are more than 1,700 Royal projects based on minimizing wastewater, preventing droughts and floods. Water management projects involved building dams to store excess water (Monkey Cheeks Project), Royal Rain and Chaipattana water turbine. These water-related projects focused on conserving water from the mountains to the sea.
