Bangkok Noi District Museum exhibits the rapid growth of communities along the New Chao Phraya River in a beautiful and realistic way. In the Royal Criminal law, such communities were referred to as “Thonburi Sri MahaSamut”. The museum also depicts the physical topography in the past, the origin of Bangkok, and other important places, such as Bangkok Noi rail station, Siriraj hospital, the Naval Dockyard, etc. The exhibition also covers the life of PhraSomdejBuddhajahnTohPhromrangsi, the highly venerable monk who resided in Bangkok Noi district. Visitors will get to know about the glorious past including the liberation of the country by King Taksin the Great and the massive immigration to settle down in Thonburi. There are a large number of photographs and models to illustrate each of the stories. bangkok-noi-districtmuseum
