    » The fourth exhibition of the Museum of Floral Culture is called "The Heritage of Thai Floral Culture", which comprises two exhibition rooms that open to the impeccably-landscaped Thai-meets-Zen garden at the back of the museum. "The Heritage of Thai Floral Culture" reveals to visitors the secrets behind our floral culture.

Flora and fauna in China have captivated the imagination of the people in the West for hundreds of years.
