The Erewan Museum really is a "must see". Its fundamental concept of displaying several major religions in a most spectacular setting as a way to encouraging a more peaceful world is one which is impossible to fault. The audio guide is clear and explains the...More

It's pricy (entrance fee is 400) but that place is amazing! Three levels: underworld, earth and cosmos, breathtaking legends, eye-popping interior, amazing idea! Audio guide is included. Listen from no1 to the last number! The garden is also amazing, beautiful space!

Erawan museum is a good visit to learn about Thai Culture and history and to see an amazing collection of pottery and antiques. It's a bit far off the tourist track but if pottery and religion is interesting to you , go for it.

I am sure this would not be a problem as there is a large reception area.
Can anyone tell me what the hours for the museum are? The official website says it is open until 7 PM, but there are a few unofficial ones that say it closes at 5. I would like to visit on a Saturday afternoon.

As far as I am aware it closes at 7pm but as it gets dark about an hour before that I would not leave it 'late in afternoon' to visit.
We will be driving to the Erawan Museum. Just want to confirm whether is there any parking spaces within the museum's compound ? I know there are parking lots underneath the flyover but it is quite a distant away. Any shuttle arrangements from there ?

We drove there also. It was a lot on the North side of the compound. I remember it being on the small side so good luck.
