Information

Wat Nang Museum is comprised of three major sections: the Villagers' Tools Zone, Buddhist Items Zone and Traditional Medicine Zone, all based on the actual condition of this farming community and its residents whose ancestors were mostly royal court officials during the Thon Buri period. Visitors should not miss the opportunity to worship the life-sized statue of former abbot Phra Phaowanakosol Thera, or Luang Pu Eiam. The monk was born to an orchard farming family in Bang Khun Thian in 1832 and passed away in 1926. He was known for his knowledge of traditional medicine and magic spells. He was highly respected by King Rama V. Wat Nang Ratchaworawihan Museum for Education is open to all on weekends and holidays from 1-4pm and from 9am- 4pm daily for group visitors. Admission is free. For advance reservations, call 087-009-2900 or 089-792-1131 or fax 02-875-4405. For more information, visit www.watnang.com.
