Vimanmek Palace

The world’s largest golden teakwood mansion, Vimanmek Palace was built in 1900 by the Royal command of King Rama V. Under the auspicious Her Majesty the Queen, the mansion was renovated in 1982 to be used as a museum to honour King Rama V displaying his photographs, artefacts, art, and commemorating Royal visits to Europe as well as to exhibit Thai handicrafts as a showcase of national heritage.

Altogether there are 31 exhibition rooms, some of which maintain the atmosphere of the past, with exhibitions of silverware, ceramics, glassware and ivory. Admission is 100THB for foreigners, though the cost of admission is included on a same-day visit to the Grand Palace.
