  • This is a must visit place for all Ayutthaya travellers. Actually this should be the starting point. This wonderful interactive museum will give you a glimpse on the history of Ayutthaya. The original gold ornaments and Buddhist equipments will help you understand that why people from all around the world at some point in history felt like staying in Ayutthaya. The museum has an internal WiFi. It has its own app. The museum displays are tagged with qr codes. Install the app on your phone. Get a pair of earphones. Scan the codes and listen on. Take your time. Seat on the benches. Feel the history. This museum will enrich your entire Ayutthaya visit. The entire town will make more meaning to you after you step out from this museum.
  • Nice collection of gold items retrieved from the ruins. But the museums needs to improve in the story telling. The first room with golden objects in the first building has some explanations and history. The rest is just a simple description of items. On second building you only have thai descriptions. But everything had its qr code. It might be more info there...
