Since 2010, history buffs or people just curious about Bangkok’s history have a new place to learn about it. At the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall (Nitas Rattanakosin), history becomes current through multimedia exhibits and interactive elements that engage all senses. Watch animations about the legend of the Emerald Buddha and famous Thai tales. Also, you can view displays of famous structures such as The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. There’s never been a more convenient way to learn about the intricate details behind their construction and design.
Divided into 9 halls, visitors can explore the sprawling space through guided tours. Parents can be relieved, as the museum features kid-friendly elements.
All exhibits showcase information in Thai and English. There are regular tours leading guests through two possible routes through the museum.
Hot tips: Unwind in its very own rooftop coffee shop with views of Loha Prasart Temple and the Golden Mount. Or, shop for trinkets and keepsakes in the souvenir shop.
