Was not expecting such an amazing place. A bit out of the way in of Bangkok but well worth the time and effort.

Privately developed, the Erawan Museum is one of three inspiring attractions that include Ancient City and Sanctuary of Truth that showcase the heritage of traditional Thai cultures. This is not a big place to walk around. Erawan Museum housed the private collection of antiques, artifacts, potteries and ceramics with explanations of their Asian origins. These are displayed inside the base... More

Erawan Museum is a privately founded museum that is NOT that close to central bangkok. Having said that, I must say it is worth the trip. To get there you take the BTS and then a taxi (aprox a 150-baht ride). The museum entrance fee is hefty in comparison to other attractions in Bangkok but not that expensive anyway (around... More

Visited erawan shrine after a taxi ride through busy traffic 90 baht from bearing, entrance fee was 400 baht, inside the elephant is a special design depockting the different levels, nice to see but is seen in 20 minutes, the garden with some statues also nice for a 20 min stroll. All in all not worth the entrance fee Restaurant... More

We covered it as a part of a day trip to Samut Prakan area which also included a visit to the Ancient City and Crocodile farm. Had hired a taxi for about 1000 THB from Sukhumvit around 6 hours to cover all the above 3 places with a first stop at Erawan Museum, followed by Ancient City and then Crocodile... More

Take the BTS to Bearing and get in a taxi to see this interesting museum. It's a little out of the way and not especially cheap (400 for tourists, 200 with a work permit) but it is an interesting place to visit. I took friends while they were visiting town and it takes probably about an hour to look around.... More

Brilliant to see but if you are worried about heights it could be scary especially the steps but apart from that it's worth a visit

Nice attraction to visit. I took BTS to Bearing and hopped into a waiting taxi (they were lining up at Exit 3). The driver didn't understand "Erawan Museum", so I showed him the map I printed from the museum's website - which had a small icon of the 3-headed elephant - and he understood. Meter showed 63 baht when we... More
