Maha Viravong National Museum

A taste of Thai culture

What we say: 3 stars

Tucked behind the King Rama IX Commemorative Library, this museum feels like it hasn't been updated since it opened in 1954.

The collection of religious statues is interesting but the wood, bronze and stone Buddhas seem to jostle each other for elbowroom. The building was styled after a Thai house -- a one bedroom Thai house. Exhibits of pottery, coins, bullets and other artefacts crowd into glass cases.

Nevertheless, as this national museum is only a block from downtown and admission is only 10 baht, a stroll through its rooms may be worthwhile. It will only take you twenty minutes to learn something about the history of the region and see some beautiful artefacts.
