Long used only as a storage place, Vimanmek Palace was converted into a museum in 1982 to commemorate King Rama V and has since become one of the biggest tourist attractions in Bangkok. The world's largest teakwood mansion, the interior of Vimanmek Palace is breathtaking and displays Rama V's personal photographs, art and handicrafts. The expansive grounds of the palace also house a number of other restored structures turned museums, each important to Thailand's cultural and national heritage. Admission is 100 baht for adults who wish to escape into a sanctuary of history and beauty.
