Although a bit out of the way this is worth a trip.
It is located within an actual naval base.
It contains many elaborately formed and decorated royal barges. They are currently being prepared for the coronation parade in early May. Consequently many artisans were rearing the decorations.
There were displays about the barges and the parade. English signage was very good.
We were the only visitors. One of the officers who will be on the barge engaged us in conversation.
Entry cost is 100 Bhat, plus there is an additional charge of 100 Bhat to us a camera.

Researched more remote highlights and found this gem. A small museum with a dozen Royal barges last used in 2012 being readied for this years pageant. Little hard to find and really a good trip. Wonderful craftsmanship with the artistic Thai ladies working with gold leaf, glass mosaic and repainted barges. A well worth visit.

Other reviews discussed the difficulty in visiting the museum and we were unsure we would be able to visit due to my husbands very limited mobility. Our driver convinced the guard of the Naval Base to allow us to pass through the base to enter the Museum. You had to be able to manage 3 steps up over the canal and lock and the short wheelchair accessible walk to the museum and 3 steps down. Once inside it was wheelchair accessible. The barges are currently being refurbished for upcoming flotilla for the king. They are beautiful with the gold-leaf and vivid colors- red, blue and green. Very few people visit so it is a relaxing quiet visit in busy hectic Bangkok.
