- If you happen in the heart of Bangkok near the Grand Palace or Khao San road, please do drop by this place. This old building was renovated by keeping its elegant design structure and interiors. There are 3 floors where each contains different style of books. Magazine and newspaper are on the ground floor as well as a coffee corner.Written June 7, 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

For non-member, donation of 100 Baht is a must.
Also you can't take the photo inside the building.
This is a one-story building and this place has all kind of books
(Children literature, fiction, biography, history, travel and culture etc.)
Though in my opinion, the books are not much as I expected.
The architecture is beautiful and worth visiting as not many libraries in Thailand look like this.Plus due to few people in this place, it is a good place to work or read something. Apart from the traffic outside, it is very quiet.Written December 9, 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- The National Library of Thailand was created in 1905 with the merger of three existing royal libraries. It operates under the jurisdiction of the Fine Arts Department of the Ministry of Culture in Bangkok.
The library aims to be a fully high-tech national intellectual property resource.
The main tasks of the library are collecting, storing, preserving, and organizing all national intellectual property regardless of medium. Collections include Thai manuscripts, stone inscriptions, palm leaves, Thai traditional books, and printed publications as well as audio-visual materials and digital resources. The library is a national information resource serving citizens nationwide.
The National Library has a long history. In 1905, three libraries, the Mandira Dharma Library, the Vajirayanana Library, and the Buddhasasana Sangaha Library, were amalgamated at the command of King Chulalongkorn the Great and renamed the "Vajirayanana Library for the Capital City". The library has remained under royal patronage since.Written August 24, 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
