Everything you ever wanted to know about Thailand—its history, art, religions, culture, and more—in a complex that includes a former royal residence and chapel. The artifacts here (everything from sacred Buddha images, royal emblems and precious stones, to costumes, weapons and musical instruments) cover Thai history from Neolithic times through the 20th century, and are a treasure trove of artistic (and academic) riches, plus. Make the effort to get up early and get here for the free guided tours in English on Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m.

Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
