The Ananta Samakom Throne Hall, Bangkok

(4.4/5 based on 700 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Here we will be seeing part of the Thai Royal family, the King of them still live here. 1 large areas with the velvety green grass thàm but very few big tree cause you to sweat when the leading foot, inside with marble blocks from the ends of Italy again bring cool feeling strangely different from the heat outside. The decor and lavish living, the exhibits tell of the past also brings up the riches. Walking a line through the giant painting in gold, embroidered with bugs ... will make you feel excitement before this strange things. A Museum of the Thai Royal family is truly a strange and exciting experience for all visitors, especially those who have never set foot in a museum.

  • An amazing building of continental style, this royal premises stood out from the rest of oriental Bangkok. The lawn was beautiful and tourists should be aware of the requirements of visitors' attire.
  • The Ananta Samakom Throne Hall is amazing. It currently houses spectacular art and handicrafts that were given to H.M. Queen Sirikit, by students from the SUPPORT foundation. The foundation was founded the H.M. the Queen to give rural farmers another form income. The craftsmanship is amazing and definitely worth visiting. If you're going alone with out a tour the best time to go would be during the mornings since tours tend to arrive in the late afternoon. There's a handheld audio guide provided with the entrance fee.
  • Tourist site. 50baht sarong for shorts. Golden blings. But sad for poor people funding those royal stuff...
  • A must visit whenever you're in Bangkok although in my opinion, it was quite hard to reach because there are no MRT station & the nearest BTS station is in Victory Monument
  • Must vist when in Bangkok beautifully crafted artifacts mostly made by Queen Sirikit Institute for ceremonial gifts to King and Queen. Not very ancient most of the artifacts created just 10 to 20 years ago. Great embroidery work. Was impressed with hand held audio tour device all museums should have such devices. Ladies must wear long skirts or will have to buy their ugly wraparound skirts.
