This time, finishing the Thai journey in Bangkok, I wanted to avoid the standard pre-flight shopping program and see something new. The choice fell on Muang Boran Park (Mueang Born or Ancient Siam), claiming to be the world's largest open-air museum.

The park is located on an area of ​​over 350 hectares, where more than 120 structures are built, in real life scattered throughout Thailand and erected at different times by different rulers of Siam. The majority of the buildings are copies (often life-size) of lost masterpieces of Thai architecture. Another group consists of genuine objects transported from various regions of the Kingdom. The third group is the result of the creative design by sculptors and artists of the park.

The museum was founded by a Thai millionaire patron named Lek Viriyaphant. The park's mission is to preserve Thailand's cultural heritage and allow a large number of Thais and foreigners to acquaint themselves with the gems of ancient architecture.

The construction of the museum began in 1960 and continues to this day. The museum was opened to the public in 1963 and recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary.

At times, the work of the masters is so skillful that it is very difficult to distinguish modern creations from ancient structures:

Interesting, how many gardeners are needed to maintain such a large area in order?

The most beautiful building in the park is a replica of a palace of astonishing beauty:

In general, if you have seen the main attractions of Bangkok, I can say that it is a pretty good place where you can spend a whole day, especially with children.
