Trat Museum


In a beautiful restored timber building on the site of the former city hall, Trat's museum features six rooms of interpretive panels (in English and Thai), models, and displays covering the history of the province from its people, culture and archaeological history to major events such as the Naval Battle of Ko Chang. It's well presented and comprehensive.
