  • Was closed when I went under renovation or something. There is information about the renovation small only. Contact in advance, from the hopefully nice, look at what appeared to be a home did not write anything. There might be going there close to the Zoo, because if I closed. Just look around the Parliament and Government District, so interesting.

  • I've read some of the most recent reviews and I have to say that all staff we came in contact with appeared friendly. There were more tour groups than individuals so that something you may want to keep in mind. The architecture of the building was pretty amazing. I wish we could of had full access to see all the grounds because from the inside it looked beautiful. I have to say if you don't take a tour you're going to be pretty clueless when walking from room to room. There isn't signage telling you the name of the room or what it's use was. There is signage explaining the many pictures hanging on the walls. Finally, be sure to wear long pants when you make a visit. If you don't, you'll have to purchase a covering for 100 baht. They'll also make you lock up your camera or mobile phone in in one of the lockers.
  • You can see the old teak house. Nice collection of the antique Thai unique "Five-Color" porcelains. (เครื่องเบญจรงค์)
  • Nice Place.. Mor than The World's Largest Golden Teakwood Mansion.
  • Sadly no cameras or even phones allowed. It's such a nice place. The grand temple and emerald Budha ticket includes this museum and Dusit palace. A MUST SEE!!!
  • No camera allowed. Unreasonable rule. But it 's good to see nice palace and learn about history of it.
