Sheraton Royal Orchid Hotel.

Rare Stone Museum, Bangkok -The Thailand fossils are really interesting and you are left to 'interpret' the stones.

Rare Stone Museum, Bangkok - The Thailand fossils are really interesting and you are left to 'interpret' the stones.A visit to the Thai Rare Stone Museum may not normally be at the top of any list of things to see in Bangkok but there are few other places on Earth that will challenge your imagination as much! A bit like cloud watching.

Within this Thai Museum there are claimed to be over ten thousand unique and interesting creations of Mother Nature.

Rare Stone Museum, Bangkok - The owner 'The King of Rocks' Mr. Bunyong Lertnimitr has collected for over 30 years.We spent a while admiring the two thousand or so that are showcased within, what we can only describe as wonderful natural phenomenon that the owner 'The King of Rocks' Mr. Bunyong Lertnimitr has collected for over 30 years. The collection started as a result of a visit to a bonsai exhibition where he saw and bought three stones - the more he looked at the stones the more he was fascinated. Admittedly some of the pieces have been sliced, polished or orientated to bring out the particular feature of the individual rock but many are just 'as found' in caves, rivers or mountains. One of the Slices of onyx "bacon" at the Rare Stone Museum, Bangkokpieces weighs over a ton! Others are small and may have been washed up on any beach, any where in the world.

The Thailand fossils are really interesting and you are left to 'interpret' the stones. We saw the 'mobile phone' that certainly resembled one, and the two meter long 'python' looks like one too.

There is no longer an entry charge to the museum but donations are gratefully received.

Rare Stone Museum, Bangkok - The Thailand fossils are really interesting and you are left to 'interpret' the stones.The Rare Stone Museum, Bangkok is probably the most interesting private collection of stones and fossils in Thailand if not the world.

We can thoroughly recommend that you pay a visit to the Rare Stone Museum, Bangkok.
