Worst Experience In Thailand
Aug 2020 • Family
Nobody (7 people i counted) speaks English, all they know 'tour takes 1 hour' which they keep repeating again and again.. they give headphones for translation that was not working in my case, then i had to go out for help, they ignored to help and didnt accept me back to the museum
Definitly waste of time and money
Sad to see how they manage and operate such nice places

Unacceptable Dual Pricing
Oct 2017 • Friends
The Dragon Descendants Museum is contained in a huge fiberglass dragon that is 135 meters long, 35 meters high and 18 meters wide.

I was looking forward to my visit until I found out that the entry fee for Thais is Baht 40 and for foreigners Baht 400. This is unacceptable discrimination and I refused to pay, so spent my time visiting the adjoining City Pillar Shrine, which is free.

There has long been dual pricing in Thailand, but a few years ago if you could produce a work permit, or residential or retirement visit, you were permitted entry to government owned attractions like national parks, at the local rate. Then the government stopped that practice, and free enterprise attractions like the Dragon Descendants Museum were quick to hop on the bandwagon in pursuit of a quick dollar, not realizing how objectionable many tourists find this. Imagine a foreign couple with two kinds having to fork out Baht 1,200 for tickets.

Get the audio fixed otherwise good
Dec 2016
Like others I baulked at the 500bht entry only to realise it was 300 plus 200 for the English audio headset. the walk through was very enlightening and visually quite smart. However the audio was very loud and made it hard to hear the translation on the headset. Plus whatever system they use has a 30 sec lead in as you go into each section of the display. Once you get out of sync it's hard to understand what's happening. I had a girl follow me around with a pocket of spare units, so as one didn't work she swapped it. I have used lots of units in this and other countries and I think they got these cheap. Spoiled the tour somewhat, a bit of signage in English at the ticket office would be good as well

Great place to visit for education
Jul 2016 • Family
I visit this place by expectation but found out that it is far better than what I am expecting. I only thought that this place is a normal museum which you will find pots, clothes and so on anyhow it turns to a full interaction museum which giving a lot of information and knowledge of Chinese history especially for people who has a particular interest like myself!

The entrance fee could be a bit high for many people who does not know what is inside but after getting in I think it worth every single cent.

Severely lacking.
Mar 2016 • Friends
What a very colourful place and it has a huge statue of a dragon which can be seen from quite a distance. Pleasant to walk around and get some nice pics but I was left clueless as to what the meaning of the attraction was. The museum was open and it is inside the huge statue but at a price of 499 Baht for adults I refuse to pay European rates for less than European standards. I was not excited about this venue and walked away very disappointed. Not recommended.

Don't bother with the museum
Jan 2016 • Friends
The site here is amazing. But...3 of us visited the museum which was such a bad experience that it was almost funny! The audio guides offered did not work half the time - sometimes they came on in Chinese but were also drowned out by the lady guide taking 2 Thais round with a mike, or the loud music accompanying the video sessions . You had to go at the guides speed as she turned out the lights as we passed each room,leaving us groping! Basically the technology did not work and we learnt nothing of the history of the Chinese in Thailand.
