This isnt really a museum. There is very little information around the site to call it a museum. The building is beautiful and with the audio guide it makes it a good experience. You can buy lotus flowers for a donation to float in the water outside the building. Going around the whole place at a slow pace takes about... More

You may call it Thai kitsch. But it definitly worth a visit. You can memorize what whealthy Thais do for their belief and religion. The place is calm and beautiful, the garden very well kept with waterfalls, river, ponds. The Erawan itself is impressing. And you have a an example of religious tolerance as the Erawan itself is a Hindu... More

This was a wonderful sight to see. A giant three headed elephant surrounded by lush gardens was amazing enough but to look inside is an incredible sight to see. So much intricate detail in all corners of the structure. You really will be spoiled for choice with your camera. It's absolutely breathtaking. The only problem I had, and it's something... More

You will not believe this structure until you see it! Astonishing building and some of the coolest statues of The Bhudda dating back to the 7th century. A breathtaking experience for sure!

We went there on a Sunday - it was not crowded at all, all people very friendly and relaxed. There is a very nice park around this stunning building. We took BTS to Bearing and then a taxi for 60 baht to the museum. Entrance is 400 baht. Afterwards we took a taxi to the Ancient City open air museum... More

Where else will you find a museum inside an elephant! The structure is by far the most interesting part but there is also lots on display, lovely gardens, shopping and food. Large groups can dent the tranquility but in the midst of Bangkok it is an oasis.

This is quite a new building - the heritage of the future. A very rich man decided to build it. Glad he did. Very impressive structure. Part of the fun is finding a good angle to take a photo of the whole thing as a background. It is that big. The grounds are well kept. On a hot day it... More

I spent three hours in this muséum and its mythical garden. Quite easy to get there by BTS to Onut and then à taxi. It is really worth it.
