Thai Boat Museum is a private museum, located opposite to Wat Mahathat, Bang Ian Road, within the same area as the residence of Master Phaithun Khaomala who founded the museum in 1994. The museum is a great source of learning about Thai Boat Knowledge.

Hundreds of boats ranging from large ocean liners to small rowing boats are on display here, as well as various types of traditional Thai boats that are now rare to be seen on the waterway.

The museum building is a large Thai-style teak house with accordion folding partitions, exhibiting models and miniatures of various boats as well as royal barges built with the same techniques as the original ones.
