The National Museum, Bangkok Reviews

  • A beautiful setting for a museum and a large collection of artifacts from all over Asia. The highlight was the royal carriages they are a wonderful representation Thailands craftsmanship and beautifully decorated objects.

  • Good exhibition... Impressive collection of photos... The building need some updating and renovation...

  • Not bad.The top floor houses the older pieces. There are works from the King and a alternating installation area.

  • closed on monday and thuesday during high tourist season??? sorry thailand, thats a big minus.

  • I recommend the National Museum more, as it has an extensive and diverse collection in a more casual setting.
