The museum has several characteristics of being the text, for example, it is as a reminder of the past remembrance. It is as a tool to construct self-awareness and to emphasize self-identity showing being one nation or community. Each individual or group of the museum patrons are able to interpret the meaning in different ways from various components displayed. Therefore, when we talk about the “Museum” from the nature of being the text as mentioned above, we are talking about the museum as a representative that tell the stories in the past taken place in the process of construction of meaning and the use of artifacts as well as the techniques of telling stories. It also tells about the interior design of the museum and how the curator wants to communicate “the true picture of being nation or community” to the outside world. This research on “Communication and the Politics of Representation through the Museums as Texts in Thailand” is in the stage of data collection. The technique used in this study, the construction of representation, has been based on the thoughts of S. Hall indicating how communication is involved in the process of construction of representation in the museums as text between the National Museum Bangkok and the Community Museum at Ban Khao Yee Sarn in Samut Songkhram province. And how the results from reading the meaning of the message audience are. It also includes how to find the ways or solutions for the development of the museums in order to create the strength and to pass on the cultural heritage of the community.
