Baan Hollanda, Ayutthaya

4.0
#1 of 8 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.

  • Since we had to wait 1,5 hours at the railway station for our train, we decided to take a rickshaw to Baan Hollanda. Half an hour is sufficient to see the very interesting exposition about the Dutch E...  more »
  • Driving, wandering in. Seen enough signs must be observed from the turn came a small road on the left, driving through the narrow way shipyard until the village of a former station of the Dutch Holland trade in. probably doesn't have much things to see. See the ruins of buildings and building beautiful Chao Phraya River, wandering into the study. Query history.

  • 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.

  • Good experince to visit and know the history about merchantman while they first settled up here around worl war two, they kept some ancient stuffs for you to see in the museum, services there were amazing, the reception girl speaks dutch quite well! Impressive!
  • Hard to find, just one sign. The place is lost amidst the shipyard. Admission free
  • Nice informative place about the history of trading between Nederland and Thailand. Very friendly staff
  • Full of history of Dutch trade in Thailand based in old capital of Ayutthaya. Hard to find but worth the visit.
  • 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.
