We did not know what to expect. There are so many attractions that are more highly rated. If you are into history, art and artifacts this is where you could spend hours. The artifacts date thousands of years ago, the first period dates earlier than 5000 BC. There are pictures of the Royal families. Of interest to me was Rama... More

Eight old teak pavillions in a beautiful green garden, 4,000-year-old historical artifacts, and bizarre modern art in a gallery building. Relax in the shade of the on-pillars-built-pavillions watching the orange and red koi-fishes swimming in the small pond. Compared to the much more famous Jim Thompsons villa, this palace has much more valuable history and art. Dont miss the Lacquer... More

A good place to visit, with nice, peaceful gardens in this hugely bustling concrete jungle. Interesting exhibits from the earliest origins of man in Thailand, including a royal barge, and numerous old teak houses filled with antique items. A very good place to visit in view of its location near the Phaya Thai rail link and BTS station, but we... More

This is a small Museum comprised of several connecting old teak houses full of thousands of artifacts collected by the Prince and Princess of Thailand in the 1920s-1940s. It is worth seeing if you are a history or art buff. There are many unusual objects in the collection as well as an archaeology hall and a music room full of... More

This was our 6th trip to Bangkok and we like to find something new to see. This was it for this trip and what a delightful find. Easy to reach off the sky train, just follow the signs. We did a guided tour and it was well worth it. Our guide was enthusiastic and passionate about the museum and full... More

We didn't manage to see all that this attraction has to offer as it was an unseasonally hot day. It tired us somewhat so we enjoyed the air conditioned room showing early pottery and especially the discoveries at Ban Chiang (photo attached) in the north-east of the country. There are a number of different buildings to see together with pleasant... More

As it was our second visit in bangkok we decided to visit other things than just the classics. And this place has been a very good suprise! It is green and quiet (an oasis as an other visitor said in his comments). The art collections are very interesting. And the people working here are nice and helpful. They give you... More
