Baan Hollanda, Ayutthaya

Specialty Museum
Dutch VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) merchants first arrived in Ayutthaya in 1604. The Dutch got a permission from the king to establish their first trading in his capital Ayutthaya in 1608.The Dutch not only involved themselves in trade but also participated in Siamese society and politics. Their records offer a unique insight into 160 years of trade and diplomacy with the Kingdom of Siam.

During the celebrations of 400 years of Thai-Dutch relation (in 2004), H.M. Queen Beatrix and H.R.H. the Prince of Orange, accompanied by H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn visited the site where the foundations of the huge brick building built by the Dutch remain. A royal gift was donated by the H.M. Queen Beatrix in order to establish an information centre near the site of the Dutch lodge.

In close cooperation with the Thai Fine Arts Department construction of the museum has begun in 2010. Baan Hollanda (บ้านฮอลันดา) opened its doors in April 2013.

  • Not far from temple and historical sites in Aydhaya. Spare an hour for museum time, enjoy nice coffee with the river view. It worth your time especially in the hot summer day or even rainy season. Pla...  more »
  • It's impossible to not like this place. You can have Dutch snacks and there is also a musuem floor about the relationship between Holland and Thailand. But just take a seat and enjoy the bitterballen....  more »
  • Nice place to learn about Holland or to eat Dutch snacks like bitterballen and kroket. It a little hidden and about 200 meter off the road next to the river.  more »

  • 5 minute drive from Japanese Village, make a quick stop here. Recommended for short break while enjoying coffee after explore the history of The Dutch in Siam. Admission fee 50 Baht if you want to visit the gallery on second floor.
  • I like how they display all objects. It's very interesting. Waffle tasted so nice. ^^
  • It's a bit small. But nice to see the history of how and why Netherland people came.
  • Nice small museum about the relationship between Thailand and the Netherlands for over 400 years. On the groundfloor a small snack-restaurant offers typical Dutch fare like kroketten and stroopwafels!
  • very good bitterballen and coffee. Bit difficult to find because google maps pin will lead you to empty land next to it.
