Best Museum In Thailand!

I've been to Thailand many times and this is my favorite attraction in Thailand. It look like a giant historical statue outside like many countries has, but inside of it is WOW!

You can actually go inside the mammoth three headed elephant. SURPRISE! Pictures are restricted at the bottom beneath the feet in one part of the museum for security reasons due to the Ming Vase. Also in the top of the head in the temple for religious reasons.

A great place to visit. The 3 headed elephant is huge and you walk up inside it. There is a lift from the first to second floor if you need it. The surrounding gardens are lovely too. Nice to take the time to sit and unwind. Take the bts to Bearing and then get a taxi from there. The guard... More

I am an American. I have lived in Thailand two and a half years. The combination of Erawan Museum which was spectacular and the very close by Ancient City made rm very best day in Thailand ever. The best thing about these two places is the spectacular architecture. But number 2 is the incredibly polite non-gouging staff. And it seems... More

This is a great temple, as you arrive it is amazing the size of this 3 headed Elephant. Is is hard to belive you actually walk us a spiral stair case in one of the legs to get to the temple inside the Elephants body. Well worth a look

We got off the BTS at On Nut as advised on website. However It is better to travel on to Bearings and take a taxi from there. You need to ask the taxi to take you to Chhang-sam-sien ( three-headed elephant) the official name may not be readily understood. There are some ceramics exhibited on the ground level. The upper...

My boyfriend and I visited for the afternoon to try and do something a little different. From the outside it is certainly impressive and the 3 headed elephant is enormous. On 3 levels, the basement is pretty low ceilinged and felt quite cramped but there is some pretty pottery. My information headset didnt work but there was a lot of... More
