Kamphaeng Phet National Museum information
Kamphaeng Phet's visit-worthy museum was being renovated when we stopped by. Previously, the museum has been home to an expansive collection of artefacts from the Kamphaeng Phet area, including an immense Shiva statue that is the largest bronze Hindu sculpture in the country.
The image was formerly located at the nearby Shiva Shrine until a German missionary stole the idol's hands and head in 1886 (they were later returned). Today a replica stands in its place.
