“Lovely building, excellent exhibition”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Got in via a ticket purchased @ Grand Palace, making this visit free of charge, but there is a fee if you go separately. Just now (Nov 2012) there is an exhibition of locally made craft items - such delicate & detailed embroideries, wood carving, jewellery, bead work & much more. It is titled 'Arts of the Kingdon Exhibition'.

Have to be appropriately dressed - legs, shoulders & cleavage covered (ladies AND gents) and ladies MUST wear a skirt or dress - I thought I was OK in cropped trousers, but had to purchase a sarong @ TB40 to wear before I could go in. Have to leave bags etc in locker @ entrance.

Good - the 3 of us took maybe 45 minutes to amble round, look, discuss, enjoy.

Bad - small tour groups were whisked round in 10 minutes! So noisy, all rushing & pushing past us, especially as we wanted to stand back a bit to appreciate some of the exhibits. We counted 5 groups do this in the time we were there. Not allowed to take photos inside.

Coffee/gift shop round the back, with toilet facility.

Definitely worth a visit!

The architect was from Europe which is evident but it is a really beautiful building. Inside just as spectacular but unfortunately no photos allowed inside. If you are in the vicinity of the Dusit Zoo, it is just a short walk away.

“Lovely shopping Mall”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Brilliant range of things necessary to live in Bangkok. Cinemas and restaurants are excellent. Supermarkets have everything an expat could want at prices often below London prices

“Interesting pieces of history”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The tour has improved over the years. I really enjoy visiting here because I love history. Especially the era of Rama IV and Rama V.
