Later, the Fine Arts Department declared this museum as a national museum and named it the “Maha Viravong National Museum” to honor Somdej Phra Maha Viravong. The permanent exhibition is about art, history and archaeology in Thailand, featuring displays of antiquities, artifacts from prehistoric to Rattanakosin periods.
