Why Museum of Counterfeit Goods is special ?

The Museum of Counterfeit Goods is comprised of more than 4,000 goods that infringe trademarks, patents, and copyrights. The museum, which is among the largest of its kind in the world, houses a collection covering 14 broad categories of goods, including clothing, footwear, watches and eyewear, accessories, cosmetics and perfumes, food and household products, drugs, alcohol and cigarettes, copyrighted works, stationery and office supplies, automotive parts, tools, electrical devices, and miscellaneous products. Many of the infringing goods were seized in raids conducted on behalf of the firm's clients. Explore our case studies on several categories of infringing products.


The Museum of Counterfeit Goods has attracted significant media attention, and at least four major foreign television broadcasting companies (including CNN and BBC) have featured the museum in their documentaries concerning the counterfeit situation in Thailand. Many local and international newspapers and magazines have also published articles on the museum. Read more about our media coverage by clicking news.

What to explore at Museum of Counterfeit Goods?

When walking around the museum there are plenty of unexpected goods amongst the T-shirts and sunglasses. Some of the fake goods seem absurd, coffee, biscuits, even washing powder. The products have been marked with either an F or a G to help visitors discern between which are fake and which are genuine. There are different groups of products: fakes which replicate the original and imitations, where they use the same colours and a similar name but are not an exact reproduction. Sometimes it is very easy to tell, and sometimes almost impossible.

There has been plenty said on both sides about counterfeit goods in Thailand, but a trip here really opens your eyes to the harrowing stories behind the situation. Being shown round the museum by a knowledgeable member of staff enhances the experience, you are sure to have many questions and they are happy to explain. The museum was opened for this purpose, to educate people and encourage them to see beyond the cheap prices.
