Anek Kuson Sala - also known as Viharnra Sien - is a prominent museum located about 20 kilometres away from Pattaya city. It is found on the Yansangwararam Temple grounds off Sukhumvit road and is one of the best places outside China where collections of ancient Chinese artefacts, antiques and paintings can be seen. Anek Kuson Sala was established in 1987 to mark the 60th birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and covers an area of over 3 acres. Some of the highlights at the museum include the terracotta figures of warriors and horses, chariots from the Emperor Qin Shi's Tomb as well as fine Chinese pottery collections that are believed to be at least 3,000 years old. Exhibits are on display at several pavilion halls on three separate storeys and a visit to the museum is recommended for travellers with an interest for foreign cultures and history.
