National Museum Bangkok

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by juyenn on January 28, 2002

It is one of the most comprehensive museums in South East Asia, located near the National Theatre and opposite Royal Grand Palace.

As I entered the compound of the museum, I can see how great the museum is. There are several buildings in the compound. I love the Thai History Gallery. I bought a Thai handcraft from the souvenir shop here which cost me 60 Baht. A traditional wooden key chain. The Theatre Arts and Games Room displays puppets and masks used in classical dance performance. The room that captured my interest is the Costume and Textiles Room where they display mannequins wearing costumes from different periods and uniforms, mostly from South East Asia and Indian. I spend almost half a day in the museum.

No camera and food is allowed into the museum. The museum is open everyday (except Mondays, Tuesdays and holidays) from 9.00am until 4.00pm.
