The National Museum Bangkok is offering free admission to all tourists until the end of January as part of its plans to commemorate King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
The museum near Sanam Luang said on its Facebook page that all visitors can visit free of charge until Jan 31 next year to “commemorate the benevolence of Our Beloved His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej who passed away on 13th October”.
The National Museum Bangkok, operated by the Fine Arts Department, is one of the must-see attractions for foreigners visiting the capital.
Wat Phra Si Satsadaram, better known as Wat Phra Kaeo or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, was also reopened to tourists on Tuesday after closing for mourners to pay homage first in front of the portrait at the Sahathai Samakomand Throne Hall and later in front of the late monarch’s Royal Urn at the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall. The two throne halls are located inside the Grand Palace.
