The Dragon Descendants Museum is the latest attraction in Suphan Buri Province, located 200 km northwest of Bangkok. The museum was built in a shape of a huge fiberglass cloud dragon spraying water. Dragon Descendants Museum was designed to present the history of 5000-year Chinese civilization that is accepted to be one of the world’s oldest and most important civilization in the form of a dragon, the well-known sacred animal.

It is beautifully and elegantly constructed and the brightly coloured dragon looks alive as if it just descended from heaven to usher in the New Year.

The dragon is situated next to Suphanburi’s City Pillar Shrine to commemorate 20 years of Thai-Chinese diplomatic relations; the exhibition recounts the 5,000 year history of Chinese civilization and migration to Thailand.

In the exhibition room, there is also the history of Chinese – Thai people. The content consists of important incidents in history, biographies of important people, philosophy, local wisdom, and important inventions of Chinese ancestors via interesting media.

The exhibition in the dragon consists of modern media such as movies, sound system controlled by computer, light and sound, and models.
