Royal Barge Museum
Tucked away inside a canal across the river from the Grand Palace is the Royal Barge Museum. The use of barges was primarily discontinued after the coup of 1932, which overthrew the monarchy; however, many were restored and are only brought out on very special occasions.
Just 8 of the 50 barges that made up the formal processions are on exhibit, varying in size and function. Display cases throughout the museum contain oars, flags, and other paraphernalia used during the processions ceremonies.
