You can admire everything from precious stones to ornamental clothes, and from prehistoric artifacts to royal thrones. In addition to the rich Thai collection, the museum displays objects from other parts of Southeast Asia and China, including weapons, sculptures, and musical instruments.

  • 门票两百泰铢,周一和周二休息,有包的话需要在前台寄存。室内展厅不能喝水。博物馆展品丰富,从素可泰时期,到阿育他耶,再到高棉,甚至还有爪哇文明的文物。位置也很方便,去往大皇宫和考山路步行即可。  more »

  • We visited the Museum with a French guide who we at explained all of the important things about Thai culture. He we to told the story of Buddha, the significance of each statue and Friesland in the temples. Really to do in order to understand everything what you have seen or what you will see during your stay. The guided tour is free but can leave a small tip at the end for the association of guides of the Museum. Possibility to visit on Wednesday and Thursday at 9:30 for about 3 hours.
