This site is included in the ticket of the imperial palace. It is not within the palace grounds and may be missed unless you are aware of it and include it in your tour.
The building is of european design. Beautiful. You are not allowed though to take pictures of it even from the outside. Even our guide didn't know why. We were lucky though because it was graduation day and they allowed the graduates to have their pictures taken in front of the building. So we were able to take some shots.
The inside is like walking into a European palace but the frescoes on the ceiling are all Thai. The building houses many works of Thai art, commemoration gifts to the king and queen. It is a testament to Thailand's culture and arts. The craftsmanship is so impressive, exquisitely detailed from the silk tapestries to the gold and silver palanquins and sculptures. I really enjoyed this place.

Loved the time we spent in this hall. The building's exterior is just wonderful. The crafts on
display are frequently very beautiful. The museum shop is well stocked. There is an
outside cafe away from the main building that we were fortunately stuck in because of a
thunder storm. Many wonderful sweets to choose from at the cafe. The whole experience
was well worth it.

We come very often to Bangkok and almost every time choose a hotel by the river. I love to hear the boats and the waves of the river. Exiting to take the public ferry.

It is located in the same area as Vimanmek Palace. Follow the directions to the throne hall and just walk there. It is massive and unfortunately, my visit there was at the same time as this big group of tourists. You have to put all your belongings in the free lockers (even your phone as theres no photo policy). If you paid your ticket together with the Grand Palace ticket, just exchange your ticket at the counter and you are free to go.

Wear some proper clothing to enter the place. At first, it was quite boring however halfway down the hall, you will find very large wood carvings, exhibitions of Thai embroideries and paintings, you will be blown away.

Make sure you check if the place is open and spare enough time to wander around.
