The Ayutthaya National Art Museum has a small but lively art and historical exhibit, with students from the nearby university acting as local English guides. The artwork is not just set in the historical context but has a significant touch of modern art as well resulting in a culmination of the old and new right under one roof. One can take away some exquisite free postcards given away there.
Located in a well-manicured garden of Ayutthaya, Ayutthaya National Art Museum is a hidden gem that showcases some fantastic pieces of Thai artwork. The museum hosts a remarkable collection of gold objects found in a few of the Ayutthaya Wats (Thai Buddhist monastery/temple). The treasuries also include beautiful sculptures and paintings depicting Buddha in Ayutthaya style. The museum provides a precise historical, geographical and traditional account of the Ayutthaya province through its ancient and modern artworks. Admission to the place is free, and visitors can pick up lovely postcard souvenirs for free.
