The National Museum Bangkok is now offering three English tours a week.

Culture vultures catching flights to Thailand this year can get more out of their trip to the National Museum Bangkok, thanks to the help of the attraction’s English-speaking volunteers.

Starting this weekend (June 11th), the museum will be offering tours in English on Saturdays as well as the regular Wednesday and Thursday tours, the Bangkok Post reports.

The National Museum Volunteers runs the non-profit tours at 09:30 local time on the weekdays and 10:00 on Saturdays.

Museum entry costs 200 baht (£4), but the English tours are offered for free by passionate expats who just love to share their knowledge of the city’s treasures.

The National Museum Bangkok is situated in the former grounds of the 18th Century Wang Na Palace and offers an insight into Thai history from the Sukothai through to the Rattanakosin periods.

Visitors can expect to see Chinese weapons, gold treasures, precious stones, Khon masks and traditional musical instruments from around south-east Asia.
