The Ancient City is a Mini-Thailand, a big open air museum east of Bangkok. In this project, surrounded by waterways and gardens, all major monuments ranging from one third of original to actual size have been reconstructed.
The Ancient City, also known as Muang Boran, is both entertaining and historically interesting. This 320-acre outdoor museum is an architectural reflection of Thailand’s glorious past. Nearly a hundred of the country’s most important historical landmarks and monuments, including palaces and temples, have been reconstructed as miniature replicas. Muang Boran also houses several ethnological displays of artifacts and antiques, including rural arts, ancient tools, and hunting equipment, evidence of the long-term survival of a native culture.
