We stopped on our way leaving town and found it a nice area with many small shops. Very well maintained and clean and worth the stop for about 1 hour. There is no charge unless you go inside the museum itself.

On 14 Feb 2013, my Thai chinese friends drove me, my wife and daughter to Wat Mangkon (Dragon Temple) in Suphan Buri about 2 hours North of Bangkok. The massive colourful dragon houses a musuem of Chinese history and early chinese who migrated to Thailand. Entrance fee is required to enter museum. Rest of temple is free to roam around or to make prayer.
Other buildings in the temple ground also have dragons on top of roofs and pillars. There is a huge carpark at rear of temple ground.

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.

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.

This is a Chinese Museum (and not a temple). It has the shape of a huge, colorful dragon - an emblem of China. It is the largest man-made dragon to exist (135m L x 35m H x 18m W). It was built by a local Chinese businessman. It took 10 years to conceive the plans and 600 days to build it. It uses state-of-the-art technology and traces back 5,000 years of Chinese History.The last visit is at 4:00PM. They only offer guided tours either in Thai or English. Due to the way it was conceived, it is not possible to visit it on your own. The cost of the ticket is 500B. At first, it looks like a Disney-like attraction. But once you have visited it, you realize that you've learnt the main topics of the Chinese culture. The Dragon Museum is part of a Chinese Village, where you can see a temple, two pagodas, restaurants & cafés, as well as a few shops.

About two hours drive north of Bangkok you come to this Chinese temple and museum also known as Wat Mangkon.
A huge colourful Chinese dragon dominates the skyline and inside is a museum telling the story of early Chinese settlers in Thailand. A small entrance is payable but the rest of the temple and grounds are free.
Lots of temple buildings and dragons and all very colourful.As is the actual temple building itself which you can pray in as well.... a very worthwhile experience even if your not Buddhist.
Plenty of car parking at the rear of the temple, and a few places to buy drinks and snacks.

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.

It is difficult to describe the Dragon Descendants Museum in Suphan Buri. The owner of the project must have a story to tell. However he did not have the overall concept how to tell it. The whole project end up with no direction, uncertain of its targeted audiences, and poorly implemented. Being through the museum once is enough and would not recommend other to visit it again. If by any chance in passing through Suphan Buri town and want to have your photo taken in front of the giant dragon, it is probably the best part of the whole visit.
