I spent about 3 hours visiting the Erawan museum on a very hot late March day in Bangkok. I found the museum and gardens to be beautifully designed and fascinating to view. It is tremendous that Thai culture is so beautifully presented in this unique museum. I found the museum to be very calm and peaceful despite on going construction... More

From driving up to the park museum temple complex, to standing in awe of the gigantic elephant structure, then actually spending the time to listen and understand the concepts that went into the design and construction of the Erawan Museum definitely makes this a must see. If you are tired of the standard wats and are not of the rush... More

Some sort of temple, museum where religion, spirituality and Buddhism comes together. Lovely place and still being developed, great photo op. But also a good place for relaxation and meditation. They bring the major four world religions together in the socket of the elephant. Then you go up in the belly of the elephant for somewhat of a surprise: upstairs... More

Truly enjoyed visiting this special place today. Beautiful and very unusual grounds, with a series of elephant replicas spewing water and other very nice buddhist gods in a lush garden setting. The "museum" itself is also spectacular, although it has a very slight foot print, but is nevertheless very unusual and well worth the visit. My only problem is that... More

i went to erawan museum on february 2017, and this place is good. but it's hard to go there. you must take a bus about 1 hour trip from Bearing BTS station. i could go there safely because i met a thai person that is very helpful. yeah, if u like long way trip u can try.

no questions that this place amazing, but it just too small ( I mean not so many things you can see).. if you go to the ancient city, you can come here also, but if you just come for this, I think that you need to think twice

It is a little out the place but it wasn't difficult to get to. We took the BTS all the way to Bearing (last stop) and then got a taxi which was a nominal cost. On the way back we crossed the highway via the overpass and got the bus back to the BTS station. We got the 102 however... More

Great temple, statues and gardens. We made it there from Bangkok central in about 1 hour by car (lots of traffic!). The size of the three headed elephant statue is outstanding, so is the temple under it. Totally worth the visit (though the entrance fee for foreigners was a bit expensive)!

Been here several times now and never fail to be absolutely mesmerised by the sheer creativity and breathtaking beauty of the craftsmanship, colours, and ambience of the place, both inside and in the sculpted gardens surrounding the magnificent elephant museum. Its totally out of the way and the only way to get there is by taxi / uber, but so... More
