Bangkok National Museum

Recommended
The largest museum in the country houses a wide array of Thai art dating from prehistory to the early 20C. Visit the galleries dedicated to Thai prehistory and history and then admire the Buddhaisawan chapel, which is home to a highly venerated statue of Buddha (Phra Buddha Sihing) and the oldest frescoes in the capital. Also of interest are the Buddha heads in the southern wing, artefacts from the sites of Sukhothai and Ayutthaya in the northern wing, and the superb royal collections in the old palace (jewellery, furniture, porcelain and ceremonial costumes).
