Thailand is a nation known for its rich heritage. Walking along Bangkok you will come across many vestiges the ancient history and culture of the nation; but no location showcases the history, culture, and art of Thailand as the Bangkok National Museum does. Located on the grounds of the 18th Century Wang Na Palace, the Bangkok National Museum is a highly recommendable attraction that admirers of culture and history are sure to be thoroughly fascinated with.
The Bangkok National Museum was established by King Rama V and for a long time was considered to be a ‘white elephant’ where priceless artifacts were just gathering dust. However, over the last few decades, the Bangkok National Museum has shed its cobwebs and, after several changes, is now one of the most exciting and insightful museums in Thailand. The collection showcased at this museum is unparalleled, as it contains priceless artifacts which originate from the Sukothai period all the way to the Rattanakosin era. Various archeological items, relics, works of visual art, and ancient crafts can all be witnessed at this museum. Some of the highlights include collections of precious stones, aesthetic Khon masks, an array of Chinese weaponry, treasures of gold and silver, century-old musical instruments, and royal chariots used for coronations and cremations. Apart from its collection, the Museum structure itself is awe-inspiring; boasting masterful Thai architectural features and accompanied by smaller structures such as the stunning Buddhaisawan Chapel and the Tam Nak Deang house.
