The Erawan Museum is good for a short visit if you are enroute for the Ancient City, which is just about 11km south of it. The Museum is good for some photo-shooting as the gigantic 3-headed elephant is impressive looking. Inside the elephant itself, the curvy bright-colored stairways and the beautiful glass ceiling are also worth some shots. There are... More

This museum was made by rich people, it's founder is the man who build Sanctuary of Truth. We loved this museum, the architecture is simply amazing, more like a strange temple.

The grounds are also really peaceful and tranquil to walk through, we happened to be there on a really quiet day midweek, we lunched on Pad Thai in the couryard and it was really delicious,... More

The museum is beautiful, interesting, and full of symbolism. However, it's quite expensive for foreigners: 400. Good news, if you go after 5pm, you only pay half of the price. Since the place is quite small, I think it's only worth it in the evening. Keep in mind that it will get dark pretty fast at that time, so not... More

A hidden gem of Bangkok. You can spend 2 hours and visit an impressive museum and surrounding garden that is off track of tourist attractions. The big three headed Elephant is impressive but event more interesting inside the museum you will find good blend of beautiful art and different religion history.

This is a bit out of the way - you need to get a BTS to the end of the line and then a taxi. The driver got pretty lost. Then it's also not easy to get a taxi back, but it is worth it. It is beautiful inside, with every inch covered with gorgeous mosaics. Although the elephant looms... More

Not too big place to visit but you can enjoy the art in there. First you can see the big elephant and you will surprise how can they build many thing inside. There are many level starts with human level to heaven level. you can take an elevator to the top hall inside the elephant body.
