Here's a sweet little park off the beaten track. Just a few paces from the west side of the Chao Phraya River is this park and museum dedicated to Somdet Phra Sri Nagarindra,
Her Royal Highness the Princess Mother (mother of the current King Bhumibol or Rama IX). She grew up in a simple house near here and inside this museum's grounds is a recreation of that home and the daily-life objects that would have been inside. Two air-conditioned galleries house photos and artifacts from the beloved figure's life but most of the signage is in Thai only. Also on site is a small art gallery that rotates shows every couple of months. Entry to all is free.
