B.PAC tour report

King Prajadhipok Museum 
พิพิธภัณท์พระบาทสมเด็จพระปกเกล้าเจ้าอยู่หัว
updated: Feb 2016

This little known museum is a great alternative to crowded temples and palaces, and offers an interesting insight into the history of Thailand. This was the 1st complete museum centering on a monarch in Thailand and it was opened to the public in 1980

Indeed, not far from the museum is Democracy Monument, which was constructed in 1939 to celebrate the coup d’état of June 24, 1932. After visiting this museum, you will have a clearer understanding of the significance of Democracy Monument, and how a country that bowed to absolute power of monarchy, made it's tentative steps towards a constitution.
The committee achieved great success infusing culture of a heritage building with displays; colourful, character an interactive "timeline" .





King PrajadhipokThe various exhibitions inside the museum guide you through the life and reign of King Prajadhipok, from his coronation in 1926, through to his eventual abdication in England, where he lived until his death in 1941. His reign marked a turning point in Siamese history and he became the last absolute monarch and first constitutional monarch of the Chakri dynasty, when the Khana Ratsadon (People’s Party) staged a coup d’état in 1932, demanding a “government of the people, by the people and for the people.” The coup was bloodless and the king willingly signed the draft constitution on June 27, 1932, essentially giving away all his powers. But later, in 1933, he expressed his discontent with the way the new government was running the country. In 1934, he left the country on the premise of an eye operation, never to return. He formally abdicated on March 2, 1935.

Location: at Saen Saep Canal pier Phan Fa lilat Bridge intersection, the museum is housed in a three (3) storey registered heritage building. It was built in the early 20th century by a French-Swiss architect, Charles Beguelin, and has served numerous purposes over the years and became the Prajadhipok Museum in 2001. The original building was built in the reign of King Chulalongkorn. Mr.Frederic John Samson was the designer of what was meant to be a tailor's store. Later, it served as office of the department of public works after the King Prajadhipok’s Institute took over the role of management. In 1980, the king’s wife – Queen Rhambai Barni – donated a large number of authentic personal items such as reading glasses, photographs and memoirs. 

The Exhibitions: Inside, there are exhibits of accounts related to King Prajadhipok; for instance, the royal lineage, his biography, his activities, the bestowal of the constitution and the royal regalia. Modern technology is used for explanations and in guided tours of the museum.

Entrance fee:
 40bt  Bags must be left in the lockers in the entrance; keys are provided and a security guard sits by the door. The museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday and there are guided tours every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
