Learn about Thai art and history !!! Bangkok National Museum is the main branch museum and houses the largest collection of Thai art and artifacts in Thailand. It's located on Naphrathat road ( near The Grand Palace) . I think it's definitely worth a visit once. ^___^
Bangkok National Museum is very beautiful:)
Skip the historical explanations in the first hall (unless you want to see 40 dioramas of dudes fighting on elephants) and head into the gorgeous collection of the finest of Thai art in the main halls. With lovely palaquins, painting, silk-work, and nice collections of metalwork, musical instruments, and armaments, it's a good place to get a summation of Thai art-craft.
It's great to be here.
This museum has an incredible collection of Thai and Cambodian art. Unfortunately, the quality of the space itself isn't that great so pieces aren't displayed as attractively as they should be and there isn't as much English language educational material as there should be to attract tourists.Definitely worth a visit but best to read up ahead of time so you are familiar with some of the artistic styles and symbolism.
