During the New Year, admission to museums and parks is free


As a New Year’s gift to the people, the Fine Arts Department has announced that from December 30 to January 2, all national museums and historical sites in the kingdom would be free of charge.

According to the bureau, this includes the 30 December launch of an exhibition of Ayutthaya-era gold jewelry at the Chao Sam Phraya National Museum in Ayutthaya.

Between December 30 and January 2, the Bangkok National Museum will host “Night at the Museum” activities from 4 to 8 p.m. to highlight the ancient architecture of the Front Palace at night. This will involve cooking demos and the discounted sale of books and artwork.
