King Prajadhipok Museum

A visit to the life of King Rama VII

What we say: 4 stars

Beautifully presented and designed, this modern museum takes you from the birth to the death of this controversial King.

Reigning from 1925 to 1935, King Prajadhipok was on the throne during the 1932 coup d'├ętat and was still the King when Thailand officially became a constitutional monarchy. The first floor of the museum presents the King's married life, as well as the life of his Queen. The second floor explores the childhood of the King, while the top floor takes a more political approach presenting the coronation, revolution and ultimate granting of the constitution.

Housed in an exquisite old building, the highly designed exhibits all have excellent and informative English translations.
