This museum, one of Thailand’s largest, boasts a comprehensive collection of antique bronze Buddha images, carved panels, religious objects, and other local artifacts found during excavation of the city. Though most of the city’s treasures were plundered by the Burmese in the 18th century or moved to the National Museum in Bangkok, it’s still worth taking a look at the collection of gold objects that includes a relic casket from Wat Mahathat, a jewel-encrusted sword, and a kneeling elephant studded with gems that was found in the crypt at Wat Ratburana.
