Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall
100 Ratchadamnoen Klang Road
The Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall, also known as The Nitas Rattanakosin Museum, is situated in the historical heart of the city and is one of the most interesting museums in Bangkok. Its unique interactive exposition was created using ultramodern multi-media technologies and covers the history, art and culture in Thailand, during the Rattanakosin period.
Rattanakosin was an era in the kingdom’s history that lasted from 1782 to 1932. The museum’s three floors house nine halls, each of which is dedicated to a certain aspect of this important historical period. Thanks to cutting-edge technologies, guests can undertake a sightseeing tour around old Bangkok, even participating in the construction of the many temples and traditional Thai houses across the city. Other sights on offer include a model of the Grand Royal Palace. In addition to all of this, 4D shows tell the story of the start of the Rattanakosin era, while animations illustrate the legend of the Emerald Buddha.
The fourth floor of the exhibition hall is occupied by a café, where visitors can not only have a snack, but also admire panoramic views of Bangkok’s historical center from its windows.
