This place has a lot of pictures! And I mean a lot! It highlights the story of King Prajadhipok, his early years, right to his ascension and then abdication and death. It is a pleasant place to visit but not if you are wanting to see an artifact of sorts.

There was only a handful of visitors when I was there. Staff was very polite. And I researched somewhere that fees had to be paid. However, it was free when i went.

If you are first or second time visitor to bangkok, skip this place as there are other more interesting sights to see. But if you are a frequent visitor to Bangkok, this museum offers yet another experience as a seasoned traveller.

We found the museum by accident while walking around the area after visiting the Golden Mount. We were very surprised to find such a well made and beautiful museum. The admission is free and the exhibits are very informative and provide exiting information about the past of the Thai Royal Family. Easy to reach by water bus, just get out at the last station. We were nearly the only ones in the museum and were very surprised how this attraction is not much more popular!

The Thais are excellent at history story telling. This museum narrates the turning point from absolute monarchy to constitutional monarchy; how King Rama VII abdicated the throne when he realized he couldn't turn the tide of the political parties. It's rather sad that he had passed away after giving his wife permission to leave his side as she had been taking care of him non-stop when he was ill.

Few objects, costumes, many pictures. This free entrance museum will interest those fascinated by the modern history of Thailand, especially the first half of the XXth century. For a couple of hours in a nice air con temperature (!), you find yourself immersed in the atmosphere of Bangkok and Siam of the 20's-30's. An enjoyable travel in time.
