The museum introduces history of the local kingdom and how the ancient artefacts were discovered. It is a good place to learn key temples and admire the excavated gems. Do note the museum doesn't have air-conditioner.

This museum, though not large, has a big enough collection of artifacts to illustrate the material culture of Ayutthaya during its heyday (1351-1767). According to the museum curator, there are about 2,400 pieces in total on display. Some of these items predate the Ayutthaya era...More
