This is a small museum in Samut Prakarn province but literally only a few kilometres beyond Bangkok's SE boundary. The basics are free parking, 400 Baht entry fee and 'headphone speaker tours' available plus refreshments. The joy though is the inside of the triple headed Elephant Shrine itself: a beautifully decorated staircase to a middle platform then a smaller staircase... More

This museum is located inside the statue of a three headed Elephant. A very unique place with beautiful Buddhist relics from around the world. Be warned that it is not easy to find a taxi back to city so do arrange your transport before you visit as it is quite far from the city center.

We went here with a group of friends who live in Bangkok, otherwise we would not have known about it. This museum provides a good look a Thai culture and great artifacts. The staff is kind and will explain lots of things as you go. Not a must see, but if you have the time and are in the area,... More

The Erawan Museum is good for a short visit if you are enroute for the Ancient City, which is just about 11km south of it. The Museum is good for some photo-shooting as the gigantic 3-headed elephant is impressive looking. Inside the elephant itself, the curvy bright-colored stairways and the beautiful glass ceiling are also worth some shots. There are... More

This museum was made by rich people, it's founder is the man who build Sanctuary of Truth. We loved this museum, the architecture is simply amazing, more like a strange temple.

The grounds are also really peaceful and tranquil to walk through, we happened to be there on a really quiet day midweek, we lunched on Pad Thai in the couryard and it was really delicious,... More

The museum is beautiful, interesting, and full of symbolism. However, it's quite expensive for foreigners: 400. Good news, if you go after 5pm, you only pay half of the price. Since the place is quite small, I think it's only worth it in the evening. Keep in mind that it will get dark pretty fast at that time, so not... More

A hidden gem of Bangkok. You can spend 2 hours and visit an impressive museum and surrounding garden that is off track of tourist attractions. The big three headed Elephant is impressive but event more interesting inside the museum you will find good blend of beautiful art and different religion history.
