  • I think that this place is not worth it, it is a large building where the striking is 3 heads elephant which is huge that looks from a distance. Surrounded by a nice garden this museum which is 3 sections: bottom with some pieces of ancient pottery and other not-so-ancient. On the first floor a sanctuary without much logic to my where tried to make it interesting by mixing all the major religions. And you finally get inside the elephant where you see a display of some 12 ancient Buddhas. That's all, entry costs 400 baths and they don't even have a map or brochure.

  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • Very nice museum. Interesting history and amazing artwork. Excellent atmosphere in the museum area within a garden.
  • A beautiful temple with stunning gardens. Well worth the entrance fee. Show them your Thai drivers license or work permit and get a discount.
