This exhibition is perfect if you have little time and need to have a some understanding of the sheer size of ancient Ayutthaya and its history. It has small reproductions of the most important parts. Visiting the Historical park without having any prior information can...More

Most of the interactive stuff doesn't work. Some of the ancient models are quiet interesting. Some displays are informative but overall it's not a must-do and nothing compared to the real sites.

Cons: the lady in the ticket office doesn't speak English. The museum has info in English. It's very small and not very interesting. I only recommend it if you have some time free. Otherwise skip it.

The displays and models can give you a better picture of what Ayuthaya was like in the past. It is a shame the multimedia (sound recordings, lighting up spots on maps) has not been repaired as of this writing. If you're on a strict budget,...More

One point is for the A/C. This place should be free of charge. Information is super basic, and I think in any travel guide you will find more historical details. All multimedia is broken. Honestly Ayutthaya is so beautiful that you don't want to waist...More

If you have time to visit this centre, you will gain a better understanding of Ayutthaya's interesting history. A visit of an hour or so gives you a good overview of Ayutthaya's contributions and significance. The building is large, giving ample room to display and...More
