  • This should be a great museum in old royal palace buildings. However, exhibits and information is poor and the whole place seems run down. Ticket price is higher than other museums in Ayutthaya. If...

  • I loved the location of this old palace: facing the river and so ensuring a fresh breeze even on the hot day we visited. The buildings are interesting from an architectural point of view: a mixture...

  • Well maintained but also here the Thais see the "aliens" is ATM's, 20 bath entrance for Thais but 100 bath for foreigners. Paid 7÷ tax this morning on the feul for my car.
  • I am as foreigner who seek a bit of history about the debris of temples that lies all over Ayutthaya.. This really conventional like museum. Cannot give any knowledge if u come here alone.. This museum only able to be fully function for the locals.. maybe.. The staff cannot speak English. I am sure all of the collections they have are precious, but because no proper meaningful explanation, it become meaningless.. I suggest u to make it more interesting, with stories, with audio and visual facilities, like they did in ChiangMai City Arts & Cultural Centre .. Bring the visitor return to d past, as if we are in that age.. Make our more than 3 times admission fee worth it.. Otherwise, it will only be a collections of antiques without any meaning... I gave an extra star because ur staffs, though they can't speak English (while I am sure they equipped with knowledge of the collections they are maintained), still they are nice enough to try.. Attitude is really matter.. 😊
