About Rare Stone Museum
Once located in Bangkok, but relocated to Pathum Thani Province north of Bangkok in 2008, the Thai Stone Museum is known for its collection of rare and unusual stones from around the world, including fossils, ashtrays, lighters, and more.
When you walk into the Thai Stone Museum, you will feel a cool air coming from the face and see a row of rocks of countless sizes sparsely placed on the shelves of novel design. These stones are of various shapes and forms, either large or small, tall or short, square or round. All the stones in the pavilion are unadorned, natural and lustrous, which makes people love them. There are few types of these stones, including jade, fossils, stalactites, pattern stones, landscape stones, pictographs, abstract stones, etc.
The most important thing is that each stone has an elegant name that matches its form. We usually say that stones have no shape, but if you look closely you can really see the shape of the stones, some look like a human skull, some look like a pair of kissing lovers, and some look like a pale mountain, so one can’t help but marvel at the wise eye of curator Zhou Zhenrong who has collected these treasures from all over the world.

In the curator’s spare time, he also concentrates on collecting books, historical materials, newspaper clippings, calligraphy and paintings, stamps, sparks, ashtrays and other works of art, of which there are thousands of ashtrays, a vast array of them, in an effort to promote the cultural traditions of China and Thailand.
