HTMS Mae Klong

Under the statue, there stands an air-conditioned museum exhibiting the military conflict with France. Also on display is the HTMS Mae Klong, an old warship of the Royal Thai Navy preserved as an open-air museum. HTMS Mae Klong was commissioned in 1937. She had been deployed in several missions such as taking part in World War II. The ship also served as a training ship for naval cadets and technical navy students.


She was in service for 59 years, including the prestigious duty as a royal ship for King Rama VIII and King Rama IX ( His Majesty King Bhumibol, the present King ). The ship was decommissioned in 1996.
