This interactive museum explores the history of Rattanakosin, an "island" made by the creation of a canal across a bend in the Chao Phraya River. Rattanakosin contained -- and contains still -- some of the most important sites in Bangkok, such as the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. History in Bangkok really begins here and this museum draws the visitor in with modern, stylish exhibits full of sound and video and buttons to press. There is also a small library, places to chill with a book, a gift shop and two coffee shops (Coffee Beans by Dao). There is a self-guided audio tour in English as well that requires a refundable deposit. The museum is right next to Wat Ratchanatdaram (Loha Prasat) Hours: Tue-Fri, 11am-8pm, Sat-Sun, 10am-8pm Admission: 100 baht
