  • Opened in 2002, in the building where there were once a John Sampson and son commercial warehouse. Museum dedicated to King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) and his wife Queen Rambai Barni, who was the first constitutionalist king of Thailand (1925-1935). There are photos, documents and personal objects Only recommended if you do not know what to do .... although it's free.

  • Not interested in the deep history of Thailand and its rulers, the Museum is likely to seem dull. Many text stands, photographs. However, if you do not first time in Thailand, you can visit simply out of curiosity. A security guard at the entrance are very friendly and happy when he sees that foreigners come to the Museum. Visit free of charge.

  • There is a place where a building from WAT Saket. You can observe quietly, not like in the tour. Admission is free of charge. It will store your bags. By all means people interested in the history of Thailand.

  • This is a free admission venue. Lots of great information on the life of King Prajadhipok and his wife. Very well laid out chronologically with some great artifacts and photos. Took about 2 hours to go through, thoroughly enjoyed it! Much better than the Bangkok national museum! Definitely recommend!!
  • Really enjoyed my visit. Very informative with lots of history about the king and his abdication to the UK. Free entry.
  • Good for learning about king rama 7 and the transition time from absolute monarchy to democracy system.
  • This museum, located in a handsome 18th c. villa by the Phanfa Pier, cathers mostly to Thai school youth, but as for the Westerners, it might be interesting only for the very serious history buffs. If you count your time in Bkk, better save it for a visit in Wat Saket and Queen Sirikit gallery nearby.
  • Great museum. Great condition for walking. A lot of knowledge.
