Fodor's Review

This museum on spacious grounds in the center of the Old City was opened by the King and Queen of Thailand in 1961. Among its many exhibits, including Buddhist sculpture from the Dvaravati, Lopburi, Ayutthayan, and U-Thong periods, is a jewel-encrusted sword with which one Ayutthaya prince killed his brother in an elephant-back duel.
