Take a journey through time at Nitas Rattanakosin (Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall), where you’ll learn all about the artistic and cultural legacy of Thailand’s Rattanakosin era.
In Bangkok’s old town district near the Democracy Monument, the exhibition is within a charming compound of historical buildings that were built during the reign of King Rama V. However, there’s nothing old-style or traditional about the way information is related. The exhibition features elaborate multimedia and interactive presentations spread across nine exhibition rooms. Visitors can choose from two routes, each corresponding to a timeline marking major events and accomplishments throughout the Rattanakosin era, allowing you to experience how places, people and culture changed.
Whatever your favourite subject, whether history, architecture, art and more, don’t miss Nitas Rattanakosin.
Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. Guided tours begin approximately every 20 minutes. Last entrance at 5.00 p.m.
Nitas Rattanakosin is approximately 30 minutes by taxi from Novotel Bangkok Silom Road. If you’d like to see more of today’s Bangkok on your way there, consider taking a San Sab canal boat at Pratunam Pier all the way to Phan Fa Lilat Pier. Nitas Rattanakosin is a few minutes’ walk from there.
