An interactive self-learning centre, The Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall has been built encompassing state of the art technology. The Hall exhibits information on the history, culture and art of the Rattanakosin area from its early inception in 1782. Equipped with 9 exhibition halls and 4D Multimedia technology, each of the rooms in the centre is dedicated to represent a part of the grandeur of the capital of Thailand the Rattanakosin.
Via the 4D multimedia facilities the centre successfully portrays the origins of the area. The Grand Palace and the famous Emerald Buddha statues are displayed on 4D down to the very last detail perfectly. A 360 degree multimedia demonstration depicts ancient forms of entertainment that existed in the area. Guests love the feeling of actually participating in the animation while it tours the island of Rattanakosin. You can also climb to the fourth floor of the building where you are greeted with a beautiful view of the Ratchadamnoen road along with sights of the metal castle known as the Loha Prasat and the Golden Mount.
The centre is open from Tuesdays to Fridays from 11. 00 am to 8 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 8 pm. It closes on Mondays. Admission fee for adults is 100 Baht, children walk in free. It’s a great idea to visit the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall before you start on your journey around the island as you will be able to make a note of what you want to see and not see through the virtual tour.
