King Prajadhipok Museum is the first complete museum centering on a monarch in Thailand and it was opened to the public in 1980. The original building was built in the reign of King Chulalongkorn. Mr.Frederic John Samson was the designer of what was meant to be a tailor's store. Later, it served as office of the department of public works. The building was renovated by the King Prajadhipok Institute and turned into a museum to display the personal belongings of King Prajadhipok, which were given by Queen Rambaibanni in the seventh reign.

Inside, there are exhibits of accounts related to King Prajadhipok; for instance, the royal lineage, his biography, his activities, the bestowal of the constitution and the royal regalia. Modern technology is used for explanations and in guided tours of the museum.
