This museum covers King Prajadhipok's whole life and has many items that pertain to his life. The displays are informative and are arranged in an appealing fashion. The museum aided in my understanding of Thai history during the first quarter (plus) of the 20th century.

The Thais are excellent at history story telling. This museum narrates the turning point from absolute monarchy to constitutional monarchy; how King Rama VII abdicated the throne when he realized he couldn't turn the tide of the political parties. It's rather sad that he had...More
