I like some of the exhibits mostly to do with weapons and king's ceremonial vehicles. There is renovation on going at the museum grounds. Do double check the museum's operation days. I came on Tuesday and it was closed. I wished the museum official had...More

Nothing special. It is ok to learn something about History of Thailand. But some sections were not finished with renovation.

The first part of the museum is really good and well organized. Also the carriages in the garage are really impressive. The buildings at the back of the museum are outdated or under renovation.

We arrived an hour before closing time, but the entry fee was affordable so we dashed about, photographing treasures from all over Thailand. Some areas were closed for renovation, but the many open were outstanding.

The National museum of Bangkok showed great potential when we entered the first hall. But then it started to get a bit messy. In 40-45 degrees heat we run between the different halls. Me and my boyfriend tried to put our fingers on what it...More

Some of the halls are still being renovated but as previous reviewers have said it's still worth a visit. The new Buddha hall is the most impressive and such a good place to visit in the heat of the day as there is air con...More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off

spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
