  • A breathtaking place! The inside of the enormous Three-Headed-Elephant is a feast for the eyes and senses! The lush gardens invite you to stroll around and let your worries go...
  • Not an the ordinary itinerary of visitors, but well worth a visit. The museum is housed inside the magnificent three headed elephant. Make sure you get all the way up on the spiral staircase...an awe inspiring Buddha room is there.
  • Nice and clean. Well organized place. Friendly staff. Magnificent view of Three headed elephant. There is also a park which displays animals in Himmapan forest.
  • I would highly recommend visiting this museum. 30 minute taxi ride from airport. You can check out the exhibits in the basement. Note no pics allowed there. Then travel up into the belly of the elephant to see many awesome displays. This is were pictures are allowed. Walk around the museum to see a lot of sculptures and water features. Make sure you use a round trip taxi service.
  • Interesting museum, but not much to see after about an hour. Was 500 baht/person when I visited, so also not cheap. Visit if you're in the area but don't go out of your way necessarily.
