This museum, considered the largest in Southeast Asia, houses a vast collection of antiquities including prehistoric art, murals, bronzes, exhibits from other Asian countries and ceremonial carriages used by royal families.
All reviews thai history royal carriages art history wonderful collection grand palace learn something exhibition hall free admission better understanding on display asian countries guided tour rainy day ticket booth few hours air conditioning well worth the visit
If you want to learn Thai history from pre-historic period to the present. The museum and its display arts, objects and artefacts will show you all in half a day visit, or perhaps the whole day, if you have time to spare. The first building...More
The National Museum in Bangkok is worth visiting if you would like to know more about the history of ghe country. There are sections that are air-conditioned and well explained also in English. But there are also other parts with exhibits which are poorly explained....More
The museum was not expensive and is a bit out of the way. You can see all the exhibits in a few minutes. The grounds with the building complex was not interesting. Building 1 which has buddha statues and i believe it was building 8...More
We started the trip there inconveniently when the taxi driver dropped us at the National Gallery instead of National Museum. We have to walk and jaywalk to reach out to the museum. The museum compound itself is very big. Collections are separated in different buildings....More
Such an interesting place - we learnt so much about the history of Thailand and its development. About half of it is under development at the moment as it’s housed in (beautiful) historic buildings but the place was so huge the entry fee of 200...More
Having read mixed reviews about the museum we were surprised by the quality of the exhibitions that were open - there’s currently a large restoration project underway on a few of the buildings but the main halls were open. The first hall shows the different...More
Lots of good stuff to see (even though some exhibits are being renovated), with lots of audio-visuals to view. You could actually spend a couple of days here if you watched all the a/v exhibits.

You can discover the history of this very interesting country by this visit. You dont need even a lot of time. Step by step you can better understand the unsure distance to the neighbours country of Cambodga. Also the colours of red and yellow have...More
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.

Hi, when we visited in November it was free to get in. This, we were told, was because of the King’s death. Although there are renovations going on, there is still much to see, and there were large crowds including many... More
Hi, when we visited in November it was free to get in. This, we were told, was because of the King’s death. Although there are renovations going on, there is still much to see, and there were large crowds including many groups. We found the museum most interesting.
