You may feel overwhelmed at the National Museum, but absolutely make time for the Buddhaisawan Chapel and the gilded funerary chariots, both of which deserve a spotlight.

Established in 1874, the National Museum provides for a half day of exploration and discovery. It has three permanent exhibition galleries: The Thai History Gallery, The Archaeological and Art History Collections, and The Decorative Arts and Ethnological Collection. The National Museum is huge, but manageable, especially considering the peaceful, shaded courtyards that offer breaks to visitors. Tours are available in English, German, French and Japanese from 9:30am until noon on Wednesdays and Thursdays, which is also when the museum offers free entry (otherwise, expect to pay 40 baht).
