The royal barge museum gives you a taste of what the upcoming kings coronation will look like on the water. All of the barges are beautiful and intricately decorated. They are currently working on restoring many of them so that they will be prepared for the parade on May 5 or 6. You are not allowed to take pictures inside the museum unless you pay 100 baht for a photographers pass. Then you can take as many as you want. Include this stop on your tour of the canals via long tail boat.
