It's pricy (entrance fee is 400) but that place is amazing! Three levels: underworld, earth and cosmos, breathtaking legends, eye-popping interior, amazing idea! Audio guide is included. Listen from no1 to the last number! The garden is also amazing, beautiful space!

A pleasant little get away inside Bangkok. My Thai girlfriend wanted to see something different in Bangkok so I took her to the museum. Unfortunately price discrimination on entry prices for foreign tourists still apply. I opted to take the audio tour but wasnt told to look on the floor for images which prompt you to change. The grounds were... More

Visited 16-Mar My wife and I were disappointed by this so called “museum”. Whilst the building itself is very impressive with a large statue of Erawan (the mythological white elephant who carries the Hindu God Indra) on top of a building inspired by an apple, the interior left me a little underwhelmed. You can get an audio tour of the... More

Erawan museum is a good visit to learn about Thai Culture and history and to see an amazing collection of pottery and antiques. It's a bit far off the tourist track but if pottery and religion is interesting to you , go for it.

I spent about 3 hours visiting the Erawan museum on a very hot late March day in Bangkok. I found the museum and gardens to be beautifully designed and fascinating to view. It is tremendous that Thai culture is so beautifully presented in this unique museum. I found the museum to be very calm and peaceful despite on going construction... More

From driving up to the park museum temple complex, to standing in awe of the gigantic elephant structure, then actually spending the time to listen and understand the concepts that went into the design and construction of the Erawan Museum definitely makes this a must see. If you are tired of the standard wats and are not of the rush... More

Some sort of temple, museum where religion, spirituality and Buddhism comes together. Lovely place and still being developed, great photo op. But also a good place for relaxation and meditation. They bring the major four world religions together in the socket of the elephant. Then you go up in the belly of the elephant for somewhat of a surprise: upstairs... More

Truly enjoyed visiting this special place today. Beautiful and very unusual grounds, with a series of elephant replicas spewing water and other very nice buddhist gods in a lush garden setting. The "museum" itself is also spectacular, although it has a very slight foot print, but is nevertheless very unusual and well worth the visit. My only problem is that... More

i went to erawan museum on february 2017, and this place is good. but it's hard to go there. you must take a bus about 1 hour trip from Bearing BTS station. i could go there safely because i met a thai person that is very helpful. yeah, if u like long way trip u can try.

Thank Vinny N
