Tour to Thailand National Museum.
Thailand National Museum on Thanon Na Phra, houses a colossal hoard of Thailand's chief artistic riches. Among its numerous attractions are King Ramkhamhaeng's stele (displayed in the information office), a black stone inscription from Sukhothai which dates back to the thirteenth century and is thought to be the earliest record of the Thai alphabet. The main collection boasts a fine chronological survey of the developing styles of religious sculpture in Thailand, from Dvaravati era (sixth to eleventh centuries) stone and terracotta Buddha's through to the more naturalist style of the modern Bangkok era.
Elsewhere in the museum compound, Wang Na, a former palace, contains a fascinating array of Thai objects d'art, including an intricately carved ivory howdah, some fine theatrical masks, and a collection of traditional musical instruments. The second holiest image in Thailand, after the Emerald Buddha, is housed in the beautifully ornate Buddhaisawan Chapel, the vast hall in front of the eastern entrance to the Wang Na. On the south side of the Buddhaisawan Chapel, the sumptuous Ayutthaya-style house, Tamnak Daeng, is furnished in the style of the early Bangkok period.
Inside the throne Hall, there are on displays historical relicts of Thai national history and antique collections separated by the different kingdom eras that where established before the present Thai nation was established.
It is consider the biggest museum in South East Asia. The national museum is made up of 6 buildings the most stunning call Samranmukamart pavilion and Puttaisawan throne hall which are uniquely in Wang Na (viceroy) Art.
