History of the National Museum Bangkok
Historical background of the National Museum, Bangkok
goes back to the year 1874. In that year His Majesty the
King Rama V opened the first public "museum" to
exhibit the previous royal collection of King Rama IV
and other objects in general topics at the Concordia
Pavillion inside the Grand Palace. Later, the Museum
was transferred to "Wang Na", once a Palace to the Front
or palace of the Prince Successor. In 1926, it became
the "Bangkok Museum" and then developed to be the
National Museum, Bangkok when it was organized under
the Department of Fine Arts in 1933.
