  • This is an extraordinary, out-of-the-way private museum. There is easy access from the BTS Sky Train, just a 15 minute walk. The Erawan Museum is known for its giant three-headed elephant art...

  • 400b for foreigners, 30b for locals. The rip off is in no way justifiable. Tiny place, out of the way.

  • Amazing experience! Very unique and interesting. The outdoor area looks a bit empty at first but contains many pockets of creativity, art, and culture. The elephant itself is staggering in size and scope. Very unique and special!
  • Really cool place a bit far from the city center. Its a fantastic place for photography. It’s best as an add-on to the nearby Ancient Siam. I greatly appreciate the discount offering the local price to expats working in Thailand.
