About this activity
For those looking for an introduction to Thai art, culture and history, this is the best place to start with. Located near
the Grand Palace, the museum’s buildings date back to 1782 and are as much a part of the display as the objects
they exhibit. Popular items in the museum include an early Buddha image from Gandhara in India with obvious
signs of influence from classical Greek sculptures; a display of traditional musical instruments from Thailand, Laos,
Cambodia and Indonesia and the collection of royal funerary carriages, including the massive and still used
Vajayant Rajarot that requires no less than 300 men to pull. Spread over various separate galleries, this is perhaps
a calm and “cooler” environment where you will be able to learn more about Thailand and its vivid history.

This is a very nice 1/2 day tour where we were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. The guide was quite informative. It was interesting to see the many artifacts and relics at the museum. The museum is partially housed in several Royal houses so you can also see the interior of the houses. The lighting in the main reception hall is very dramatic.The museum is under renovation so not all exhibits are open to the public. This was our first day in the city so the tour was just the right length for our group of jet lagged visitors.

This was the one tour that I had doubts about selecting, but it turned out to be exceptional. Not only was the guide fantastic, the museum itself was absolutely fascinating. Moreover, it was the one part of the palace complex that was not overrun with Chinese tourists armed with selfie sticks and umbrellas.
