The museum has Thai antiques on display, including Ban Chiang pottery over 4,000 years old. Originally the home of Prince Chumbhotpong Paripatra and his wife, they converted it into a museum which opened in 1952.
The museum features a group of four traditional Thai houses with covered hallways between them. There is also artwork on display in its Marsi Gallery.
Phra Racha Wang Derm (Phra Ratcha Wang Doem, literally former palace), also known as Thonburi Palace, is the former royal palace of King Taksin, who ruled the Siamese (Thai) kingdom of Thonburi following the fall of Ayutthaya in 1767 and up until the establishment of Rattanakosin in 1782. It later served as the residence of several high-ranking members of the Chakri Dynasty until 1900 when the palace became the site of the Royal Thai Naval Academy.
The palace is now within the grounds of the Royal Thai Navy headquarters in Bangkok, and is open for group visits pending advance appointment.
The Phya Thai Palace (Wang Phaya Thai) or Royal Phya Thai Palace (Phra Ratcha Wang Phaya Thai) is located on the banks of the Samsen Canal (Khlong Sam Sen) on Rajavithee Road (Thanon Ratchawithi) in the Ratchathewi district of Bangkok. King Rama V bestowed on it the royal name of the Royal Residence of the Phya Thai (Phra Tamnak Phaya Thai) or the Phya Thai Palace, with Phya Thai (Phaya Thai) meaning Lord of the Thais, during his reign and so it was built with this bearing on design.
Front Palace is the colloquial name for the residence, person and office of Krom Phra Rajawang Bovorn Sathan Mongkol, which was the Siamese monarchy's equivalent of the viceroyal office of Uparat until the end of the nineteenth century. The office-holder was considered second only to the King, and the heir presumptive.
The office is also referred to in English as "Vice King" and "Second King." It originated in the Ayutthaya period and later gained significant powers during the Rattanakosin period. Front Palace occupants were usually a son or brother of the reigning monarch.
Chitralada Palace or the Chitralada Royal Villa (Chit Lada Raho-than) is the Bangkok residence of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) and Queen Sirikit. The palace is part of the Dusit Palace complex. King Bhumibol was the first king in the Chakri dynasty to live in the Chitralda Palace. He moved there after the death of his older brother, King Rama VIII in the Grand Palace.
The palace grounds, 4 square kilometers surrounded by a moat and Palace Guards, also contain the Chitralada School, initially established for the children of the royal family.
The school is, perhaps, the most exclusive school in Thailand.
