Petit Futé's opinion on BANGKOK NATIONAL MUSEUM

Vintage plate 2020

An advice to take advantage of this museum, which is said to have one of the richest collections in Southeast Asia, to take a guided tour (free of charge) which will be much more instructive than lapidary labelling... One regrets indeed the lack of explanations and the impression of an accumulation of little studied objects. The museum was founded on the site of the Second King's Palace (Wang Na Palace) and consists of 3 wings, one for the hot season, one for the cool season and one for the rainy season. Today the palace houses collections of ceramics and textiles, collections of musical instruments and theatrical objects, as well as an interesting collection of weapons. The museum traces the history of the country. The south wing consists mainly of representations of Buddha dating from the 7th to the 13th centuries. The north wing contains representations of Buddha from the Lanna and Sukhothai periods to the present day, as well as the collection of ceramics.

The "Red House" was built in teak for the sister of King Rama I, Princess Sudarak. Inside you can see the collection of furniture that belonged to the princess. Also of interest is the gallery of the funeral floats; beautifully decorated and maintained, these floats and palanquins are still used by the royal family. The Buddhaisawan Chapel was built in the 18th century for the king's younger brother. The representation of Buddha (Phra Buddha Sihing) is the second most important in the country.

A faire si l'on dispose d'un peu de temps
Pour bien apprécier la visite prendre de préférence un guide, peu de guide qui parle le Français nous l'avons fait un mercredi matin à 9h30 pour être sur d'en avoir un, compter 2h de visite et 200 bath d'entrée

Trés grand musée trés interessant. Multiples batiments avec de multiples exposition thématique dont une grande collection de statut de bouddhas. Reconstitution de maison traditionnelle (maison rouge). surprenante collection de char d'apparat doré et de trés trés grande taille. Musée situé tout prés du grand palais. consigne a l’accueil pour laisser notamment les sacs a dos.

Pas indispensable
Le musée national presente de jolies choses, mais malheureusement plusieurs ailes fermées, non indiquées au départ.
A voir mais n'est pas indispensable si peu de jours à consacrer à Bangkok

Joli musée contenant beaucoup de jolies pièces d'art différents. Ce ne fut pas ma plus belle visite de Bangkok mais je le conseille pour les amateurs de musée.

Une visite qui semble incontournable pour connaitre et comprendre un peu l'histoire de la Thaïlande. Lorsque je l'ai visité, plusieurs ailes étaient fermées pour réfection. Les collections sont impressionnantes.
