Sounded to be a good place to visit, however the museum is virtually non-existent now. It looks that the enlargement works of the new palace has swallowed it. The taxi driver went round and round and gave up finally.

There are meant to be two sections to this museum but one half was closed. There is a bit of information about white elephants in the first section, however the brochure shows more stuff and a huge elephant statue. That was not there. Disappointing. Spend ten minutes here, but nothing more.

This single floor building is based in the vimaneck palace grounds on the dusit zoo side. It's has a little information about the history and reasons for the white elephant being important. Death by elephant was an interesting punishment! However it's very small and takes 15 mins to visit

If you are fascinated by white elephants and have a desire to learn more about them, then this is a great place to learn. Very few tourists, displays are in English and Thai, the exhibits quite tired, but, overall a good explanation of the role of white elephants and how they are selected. If you have no interest in white elephants, I would think you would be completely underwhelmed. Visited in 2010
