National Museum, Bangkok: 26 reviews and 48 photos


This teak house was originally one of the private living quarters of Princess Sri Sudarak, the elder sister of King Rama I. It was moved from the old palace in Thonburi to the Grand Palace for Queen Sri Suriyen, wife to king Rama II. After King Rama III passed away, one of her sons, King Pin Klao, became the Second King to King Rama IV. He had the house, in which he had once lived as a child, moved here to the Palace of the Prince Successor, now the National Museum compound. Today the Red House is furnished in the early Bangkok period style with some of the objects that once belonged to Queen Sri Suriyen.
