After that, went back to pick up the lotus to float at the water.

There were many people around the entrance gate because people take photo at this spot.
The architecture of building is beautiful. The pink color looks attractive. Before enter to the museum, must take off your shoes. 

I took this photo from the top because many people at downstairs.
Erawan Museum is divided into 3 zones which are 
1.       Suvarnabhumi (Basement)
2.       Earth (Dome Building)
3.       Cosmos (Elephant Statue)

The first zone that I entered is The Earth. 

Stained Glass Painting is on ceiling. The design and drawing are beautiful. 
When walk until upstairs, continue spiral staircase but if you come with your parents, can take the elevator at this floor. This zone (blue wall) is cosmos zone. 

After that, I went downstairs and went to Suvarnabhum zone where is on basement floor. This zone collects the old treasures. Photo taking is prohibited.

Apart from the museum, the garden is interesting. It's peaceful and feel relaxing. There are restaurants, coffee & tea shop, souvenir shops.
