As of July 31 2018 Vimanmek Mansion is closed; wish I had read TA before going.
Also Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall is closed I don’t know how long for as I don’t speak Thai and the security guard doesn’t speak English but judging by the...More
Don't lost your time, Vimanmek mansion is under renovation, the garden is even closed ...
The opening is not given and the closure to the public is not specified anywhere! always sell tickets with visit of the grand Palace and this House!
This mansion is closed as of 25 June 2017. We asked the guards nearby and they said it is closed, and will be closed for a long, long time. Perhaps contacting them prior to the visit is a good idea. Otherwise, a visit to the...More
This is a traditional palace and the building made entirely of golden teak. Leave your cameras and mobile phones when you entering the room of Vimanmek Mansion. There will be double checking before entering the room. So many staff here to check you. Leave your...More
The Mansion site is now totally enclosed in steel sheeting. I spoke to a local guide who said it will be 'many many months' before it re-opens.
This is our second time of going all the way out there to find it closed.

We went all the way to Dusit Park to visit Vimanmek Mansion just to find it was closed for restoration until further notice! What a disappointment! Appreciate the Thailand Tourism Authority provide this kind of information publicly. Besides us, there are a couple of Spanish...More
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city. The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and the serenity here is in stark contrast with the chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit
seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.
