Made a point of visiting here as our funds were running low and couldn't afford the main tourist attractions in the area. Was told by security guards on the gate that it was closed....

We went to this place as a recommendation from our hotel concierge. We arrived there around 3.30pm and found that major parts of the museum were closed for public. Quite disappointing as it cost us 120THB in taxi fare to get to this place. We...More

Many closed rooms due to room renovation in various areas of the museum. Yet, the collection is quite unique and makes us travel through time. A good place if you have some time left in Bangkok.

First building displaying and explaining about forging current Thailand was interesting with their dioramas and relatively well displayed events. But, after the first building, all the galleries seem to be very much in need of renovation. Very poor maintained dusty piles of artifacts were there....More

This is a complex style museum with many interesting artefacts on display. The buildings however need renovation as the place seems tired and somewhat forgotten. A pity really as it has the potential to be a great venue. No cafe or air conditioning.

I decided to tour this museum one afternoon while in Bangkok a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately I came on a day when it was free to get in. Otherwise there is a fee. The main museum was very good and informative on Thailand's history....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
