  • Utter fake plastic statues, in irrelevant obscure location. Waste of time and money getting there. This is NOT a museum. Thai language only AVOID  more »
  • We didn't know what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised. This place is more of a shrine than a museum, and when we visited the other people there were locals paying their devotions to Ganesh...  more »
  • The chap who established this museum has been collecting Ganesh for 41 years and he spends his life travelling and lecturing about Ganesh. Such a surprise that such a rich and wonderful experience is ...  more »

  • A lovely place to spend an afternoon. It is more like a park than just a museum. Not very crowded during the week and very calm outside of the main buildings. There is quite an extensive shop as well. All is maintained impeccably clean. Well worth a visit.
  • Dreadful fake museum inexplicably in the middle of nowhere for no reason. Whatever you do do not waste your time and money travelling to see nothing. Plastic icons for a plastic religion. Hardly anyone visits this Remote Disney World. Therefore there is no income to pay staff, therefore there are no staff. Tape recordings in the Thai language only. It’s as if the Thai government realise this fake museum does not warrant any roads leading to it, therefore prepare yourself for a difficult journey to even find it. The only monk in sight was an overweight android sat on a bench, that I’m sure I have seen previously in the latest Blade Runner movie. There was no information written in any other language than in Thai. Two plastic Roman centurions are visible which presumably they stole from a nearby Roman Museum, I see no relevance to the Roman Empire and the elephant man. Nothing about this place is original or genuine, apart from one man sweeping away leaves. There were what appeared to be two genuine artefacts in the car park a dtac 4G bench and a very small sand pyramid. An utter and total waste of time.
  • Beautiful and lovely atmosphere. You don't have to pay anything to go into that amazing place! ♥️♥️
  • A waste of time and fuel. A non sense "museum(?)" They are having a laugh. No explanations, no staff (there is a little bar with soft drinks and a gift shop but nobody to attend customers) and nothing of interest. Friking wax sculptures gallery... AVOID
  • Outstanding display of Hindu gods and goddesses,Beautiful gardens and beautiful buildings the Deities are magnificent. They rent costumes you can dress in ancient Indian attire. Limited snacks and drinks. Beautiful and comfortable setting
