This place has been built for over 20 years. There are many interesting things about Thai-Chinese Sculpture and Regional stuffs. It's about to see how Buddha Region has affected ancient Chinese in ages.

We were unaware of this place - friends that live in Pattaya took us, we therefore had no expectations before getting there. This is a must see, must do experience. It's a Temple which is now a museum, steeped in history, and expresses very well the relationship between Thailand and China. China has donated many beautiful pieces to the museum... More

It is a struggle to find really classy things to see in Pattaya but this one delivered and is a good morning or afternoon out. Again you have to ask "why?" other than it is one man's obsession, but this is a very peaceful and spectacular place. It is, in effect, a monument to Chino Thai relationships and recognises the...

We wanted to visit this museum as soon as I read that they had Terracotta Warriors there. We spent about 2-3 hours here with our friend and driver Veron who lives in Pattaya. I was amazed at all the statues and the stories they tell. For me the best was seeing the terracotta warriors even if there is only a... More

This is place strictly for people who lovely history and art buffs. The Viharnra Sien is one of the best museums that I have ever seen in terms of size, the items on display, the sheer decorative and the beauty of the Buddha hill in the background. This a comprehensive collection of Thailand and Chinese art and historical monuments. We... More
