The art of Bangkok in the National Museum

Discover Thailand and its history at the National Museum of Bangkok.

Considered one of the largest and most prestigious in the city, the National Museum of Bangkok is housed in the former Royal Palace, not far from the Grand Palace. Divided into a set of temples, exhibition halls, hangars, shops and cafés, you will be captivated by the play of lights and shadows. There are hundreds of Buddha statues, which you can admire in all their forms and representations, in addition to Ganesh – along with other Hindu deities. Exhibitions are presented by theme and by period, from prehistorical times to the beginning of the 20th century, and by major geographical area: Thailand and Cambodia. The museum is rich with incomparable cultural heritage and you can discover all kinds of artefacts and objects, whether artistic or ceremonial, as well as musical instruments, costumes, furniture, jewellery and porcelain. Enjoy early morning guided tours or use an audio guide if you prefer to explore on your own.
