As of Saturday, June 11th, 2011 the National Museum Volunteers’ will be introducing English guided tours of the National Museum Bangkok on Saturdays, in addition to its regular Wednesday and Thursday tours.
UPDATE: The Saturday tours are now only on request. More information on their website.
Until recently NMV guides provided free tours of the museum in four languages every Wednesday and Thursday in English, French, German and Japanese. They have now introduced an additional day – Saturdays – to enable the working community and weekend visitors to Bangkok to also benefit from the treasures of the museum.
Although their regular tours commence at 9.30 AM, Saturday tours will commence at 10 AM, providing ample time to arrive at the museum.
Just turn up at the box office with family and friends, the entrance fee is 200 baht but the guided tours are free of charge, given by a passionate group of expats who simply love what they do.
