All reviews take photos bangkok noi on display works of art royal thai worth the effort an adventure detailed information chao phraya river long tailed boat thai history well worth the trip orange flag sheer size across the river admission fee tuk tuk
As others have written, getting there is much of the fun.
We went from the orange (or blue) flag boat N12 stop. Google maps points you in the right direction and the route is in fact quite well signposted. It is mainly along a narrow...More
Despite being listed as one of the attractions along the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, this museum probably doesn't rate very highly on most visitors' must-see list. Nevertheless, it's a relatively fascinating museum that showcases the royal barges that are brought out for use only...More
A great (if small) display of unique barges. Sadly you need to plan ahead if you want to visit - we took a river commuter boat to the nearest stop but it was a long walk fr off the beaten track - came back by...More
The royal barges represent a tradition that few others have as Thais line the sides of the Chaopaya river to catch a glimpse of these ancient river limos. When not used for special occasions, they are stored at this museum. It is a must see...More

this was an interesting museum trip for me. well, it was my first time visiting this type of museum. and it was my curiosity that led me here. it's very well preserved and well kept.
the only thing i wish was better was the path...More
My husband is a sailor so I was dragged along to see the royal barges. Quite a hard place to get to, but worth it when we found it. Most of them seemed to be being restored when we were there but there was still...More
This is a very unusual museum with the eight restored barges actually docked in the water - definitely a must-see with the barges’ sheer size (some over 100 feet long) and their beautiful artistry. Signage and displays onsite are very informative.
The problem is that...More

To answer this you are best to look up the Royal Barges on the Internet, the barges rarely leave their Museum and I believe it was many years ago they ventured out and probably many more years before that even. The barge... More
