  • Is a small gallery. With a small sample of different epochs of Thai painting, but there's not much variety, not the material is very well exposed. Until 31 March 2017, had an interesting temporary exhibition. Closes at 4:00 pm, is very close to the National Museum.

  • Some really lovely work. Only down side: many works are without labels. But absolutely worth a visit.
  • Decent exhibits, but scope for huge improvement given Thailand’s rich art & culture. Staff are friendly & helpful.
  • 1. Poor quality work 2. Many pieces are replicas 3. Over priced 4. Half of the paintings have no title or description of any kind. Four reasons not to visit the national gallery. In fact a whole section of the exhibition was made up of poorly photographed replicas of paintings that are hanging In the kings private collection. I'm guessing that were all the decent work hangs :-(
  • The best part I liked was the Thai paintings from different times. Improvement can be to put more narratives on each painting for better understanding of foreign visitors.
  • Don't confuse this place to national museum. 200 baht for nothing.

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.
