Built in 1959, the Chao Sam Phraya National Museum was funded by the proceeds from the sale of votive tablets discovered in the underground crypts of the principle Prang tower of Wat Ratchaburana. Being the second largest museum in Thailand, it is known for its unique collections of Thai religious art and artifacts which makes it one of the must see places in Ayutthaya. The collections mainly consist of impressive antique bronze Buddha images, carved panels, religious objects and other local artifacts. The Museum comprises of three buildings, a group of thai-styled houses, a building showing Thai arts and the Chao Sam Phraya building. As the Museum is a collection of ancient Thai glory, it will be a great place to learn about the historical background of the Ayutthaya civilisation with sufficient evidence.
