Housed in a lovely colonial building that served as the Royal Mint during the reign of Rama V, the National Gallery pays homage to Thailand’s art movement from the 17th century onwards, with a focus on the works of national artists. The permanent collection is spread over two floors in large rooms. Rotating exhibits are held in the spacious rear galleries; more modern exhibitions are located in the gardens and special collections building. One highlight includes paintings by the Kings of Thailand, including some beautiful pieces by His Majesty King Bhumibhol Adulyadej painted in the 1960s. Young children may have limited interest in the National Gallery. Compared to museum galleries in Europe, the exhibition space feels dark and empty. There are also minimal descriptions of the works, which can make the artwork difficult to appreciate.
