Zheng Zhao Floating Museum Bangkok

The Return of Thailand’s Only “Floating Museum”

When it first spread its lug sail and moored at ICONSIAM in November 2019, this junk was known as “Si Maha Samut”. With its name meaning “The Glory of the Sea” back then, it told stories about trade ties between Thailand (previously known as Siam) and other nations. This time, the same boat has returned to ICONSIAM as a floating museum but with additional exhibitions.

The focus of exhibits, moreover, shifts to the battles led by King Taksin the Great in his successful efforts to reclaim Siam’s independence and his establishment of Thon Buri as the new capital. As the ship takes a new theme, it is renamed as “Zheng Zhao” in tribute to the late king. “Zheng Zhao” is the Chinese name of King Taksin. “Zheng or 郑” is his surname while “Zhao or 昭” means king. Together these two words mean the “King from the Zhao Family”.

On its deck is enshrined the life-size statue of King Taksin. Sculptors spent 40 full days in perfectly creating this statue for people to worship. Facial features and posture were based on the Grand Statue of King Taksin and his statue at his shrine in the Old Palace (which is under the supervision of the Royal Thai Navy).
