Chao Sam Phraya National Museum

Chao Sam Phraya National Museum is the most important museum in Phranakhon Si Ayutthaya, and used to display Ayutthaya arts and antiques. The museum was built in 1959 from a sum of money donated by people buying Buddhist votive tablets discovered from a hiding place at Wat Ratburana with the tatal money of 3,416,928 baht. The museum was open to people on December 26, 1961. Due to the fact that Wat Ratburana was built in the reign of King Chao Sam Phraya, the museum was also named Chao Sam Phraya.

The museum comprises 3 main buildings:

The houses were built and put over a pond. They are displayed as conservation of Thai styled houses in the middle region. House appliances are also displayed showing Thai people houses in the old style.
