Attraction Details :

Satul National Museum (Guten Mansion) is located on SoiSatulthanee 5 across the Satul Metropolis Land Office. It was built in 1898 and finished in 1916 by Phraya Poomnartpakdee or TuangubaharuddinbinTammangong (originally called GutenBingumae), the Satul ruler during the reign of King Rama V. This mansion was built in order for King Rama V to stay during his proceeding in the south, however the King did not stay here therefore it was used as a temporary accommodation and the City Hall of Satul. During the WWII around 1941, this building was used as the Headquarters of the Japanese soldier. Then during 1997-1999, the Fine Arts Department renovated this mansion into a 2 level plaster work building just like the western architectural style. The door was built in a curve western style and the roof was built in a Thai style with earthenware in a leaf sheaf of banana tree shape. The window was built with small woods in a horizontal flake. The ventilator is in a star shape according to the Islamic architectural style. Inside the mansion, there is an exhibition to show the history of Satul province and the way of living of the people here such as pot molding. The Satul Ruler Room and the Thai-Muslim Culture room show the culture and the way of living of the local people.

The mansion is opened from Wednesday to Sunday, closed on Monday, Tuesday and public holidays. The visiting hours are during 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The entrance fee is THB 30 for foreigners and THB 10 for Thai. For more information, contact 0 7472 3140.
