The Ananta Samakom Throne Hall, Bangkok

4.4
#3 of 45 in Museums in Bangkok
Specialty Museum Museum
Located within Bangkok's famed complex of royal palaces, The Ananta Samakom Throne Hall includes a museum and a reception hall noted for its one large dome and six smaller ones. This structure served as the headquarters of the People's Party and held the country's first national assembly before reopening as a museum. You can take a guided tour every 30 minutes to see domed ceilings featuring the famous paintings by artists Galileo Chini and Carlo Riguli, which trace the history of the Chakri Dynasty. Be sure to dress appropriately, which means sleeved shirts and pants for men, and long skirts or sarongs for women. A visit to The Ananta Samakom Throne Hall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bangkok family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • Big place. Lots of walking/waiting time. No camera/video. Gender discrimination: woman has to wear sarong even with long jean, men doesn't need. The inside doesn't worth any of the force law.
  • I went along December 2016. Big mix up trying to get in which wasn't good. Went to one gate and was told no entry as I had a bag? Then told to goto another gate to be told no entry. Then ended up at a third gate and finally got in. I got my ticket and then was told I had to buy a sarong. Not loan, buy one ?! So another 50 baht. So when I got into the main building and had my audio guide it was very nice inside with plenty to see and find out about. The use of beetle wings as a decoration impressed me more then all the silver and gold. One major problem that spoiled the visit was the hoards of Chinese. Large groups of about 40 at a time going around making lots of noise and a very loud tour guide who all shouted was out of order. So watch out for those !
  • The centerpiece of Bangkok's own Champs Elysees, this impressive two-storey white marble palace sits at the end of Dusit's long, wide Royal Plaza, a leafy ceremonial boulevard that's often the focus of regal pomp and ceremony during royal celebrations. And near Dusit zoo
  • Visited last 2015... if you want to enter inside the museum a proper attire for ladies is being implemented.
  • Massive area, very impressive structures & well maintained grounds. The only issue is the amount of people. The line to go in the main building was huge, about an hour wait at least. Didn't think it was worth it in the heat.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
