The upper floor was under renovation but the lower floor gave an interesting history of the area although in Thai language. Our guide did translate for us.. Also a family tree of Thailand rulers.

Very short visit as most rooms were closed and so the only exhibition was a few photographs of the Thai Royal family and family tree.
