Buddha Dharma Relics Museum พิพิธภัณฑ์ พุทธธรรม พระบรมสารีริกธาตุ

Buddha Dharma Relics Museum 
พิพิธภัณฑ์ พุทธธรรม พระบรมสารีริกธาตุ

Next to Wat Pariwat วัดปริวาศ is Buddha Dharma Relics Museum พิพิธภัณฑ์ พุทธธรรม พระบรมสารีริกธาตุ.
Entry 100 Baht (staff pointed us to a donation box). Open 10 am to 8 pm. (From internet, "Tourist Entrance Fee" 160 Baht and 9:30 am to 6:30 pm posted at the museum.)

Outside the museum:

In the museum religious items from various Asian countries, arrange by country. There were "no photo" signs, but this was not enforced, in one case staff even encouraged us to take a picture.

Replicas of the Emerald Buddha dressed according to three seasons:

We spent 16:10-50 in the Museum. Interesting place, overall impression was that it's more a showroom to sell religious items and collect donations than a museum, i.e. their target audience are worshipers and not tourists. Nonetheless, we felt welcome. Few other visitors, but assistants in every room.
