Baan Hollanda, Ayutthaya

4.1
#1 of 6 in Museums in Ayutthaya
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.

  • No, not because we do not have taken account of the hours of operation, but because they just have ceased (see attached picture with explanations) it comes down to is that they are starting from the third week of October 2017 with it stopped because there is no funding was gone. That can of course, but then it would be so nice to here on the website message out of it. Now we stood in front of a closed door.

  • Trade station and village wilanda tourist attractions, but most people ignore because they often drove to another or to go over, but if you like history and museums must come here and you'll be impressed like I was.

  • ตอนนี้มีทางเข้าใหม่จะหายากสักหน่อย แต่พอเจอแล้วดีเลย เป็นเหมือนบ้าน 2 ชั้น ติดแม่น้ำ ข้างบนเปิดเป็นพิพิธภัณฑ์เกี่ยวกับประเทศไทย-ฮอลแลนด์สมัยก่อน มีการเก็บค่าเข้า แต่วันนี้ไม่ได้เข้าชมเพราะเคยมาแล้ว ด้านล่างมีมุมขายของที่ระลึกและร้านกาแฟ มีมุมให้ถ่ายรูป ขนมเค้กมะพร้าวอ่อนอร่อยมาก แป้งเค้กเนื้อเบาสลับชั้นด้วยครีม ด้านบนเป็นเนื้อมะพร้าวอ่อน รสชาติหวานกำลังดี ใครมาควรลอง เจ้าหน้าที่ก็ยิ้มแย้ม ต้อนรับดี ปล. ห้องน้ำสะอาด
  • A bit hard to find. Look for a dirt parking lot, the turn left next to lots of abandoned boats and you'll eventually end up here. Dutch delicacies like bitterbollen and kroket are offered here.
  • A good place to stop for refreshing yourselves after visiting various historical sites in Bang Pa In and Ayuthaya. Exhibition on second floor is interesting but it is not the place to visit to see the ruins building.
  • 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.
  • An informative museum designed in a way that evokes curiosity. Definitely worth a visit if you are remotely interested in Dutch-Thai Relations or generally a European perspective of Ayautthaya.
