It is located near the Wat Yansangwararam complex, Nong Nooch Gardens and Buddha Mountain and can easily be added to your itinerary in the area. Allow 1.5 - 2 hours. Prior to entering the inside of the museum, you must remove your shoes. The floors... More

An old temple converted into a museum full mainly of Chinese artefacts to celebrate Thai-Chinese culture. I found it an interesting exhibition which even included original Terracotta warriors and two horse drawn chariots from Xian. A... More

This museum is a hidden gem near Pattaya. Besides all of the artwork and metal cast figures, it is the only place outside of China that you can see real terra-cotta soldiers. The value of all the artwork in this museum would be in the hundreds of millions of dollars! It is a must see!

Entrance fee was only 50 THB which worth every Satang. Operating hour : 08.00- 18.00 hrs. (Google said close time is 6.30 p.m. which is... More
