Prasart Museum is located at 9, Soi Krung Thep Kreeta 4 A, which is intersected from Srinagarindra road. Mr. Prasart Wongsakul has been collected priceless artworks and ancient items since many people export these national artworks and ancient items to foreign countries and Thai people may not have a chance to see them.
