Vimanmek Mansion
Built by King Rama V, this palace is the largest teak structure in the world featuring a unique blend of Victorian and delicate Thai architecture.Located on Ratchawithi Road behind the National Assembly, Vimanmek Royal Mansion is the world largest building made entirely of golden teak. Removed from Ko Sichang in Chonburi province, it was rebuilt in the Dusit Palace in 1900 by the command of King Rama V. It was recently renovated by HM Queen Sirikit, and made into a museum paying homage to the late King.As well as antique furniture, there glassware, porcelain, old photographs and memorabilia from the late King reign (1868 1910). Many rooms currently maintain the atmosphere of the past.

Billed as the world largest teakwood building, Vimanmek Mansion was built as a royal residence in the first few years of the twentieth century. It was only used for a few years before it fell into disuse and was practically forgotten until the early eighties. It was rediscovered by Her Majesty the Queen and turned into museum reflecting the Thai heritage from the dramatic reign of King Rama V.From a single restored building in the 1980s, the Vimanmek Mansion Museum has grown to include more than a dozen restored structures of the old Dusit Palace displaying everything from ancient artifacts of Thailand pre history to contemporary photographs donated by His Majesty the King. It has now become a large complex of museums where the buildings themselves form part of the collection on display.
