Background: Near Bangkok in Thailand, final touches are being put to what has been billed as the world's biggest outdoor museum, due to open in April.
This showcase of 1000 years of Thai history and culture covers 216 acres of former rice paddyfields, and is the brainchild of two Thais who conceived the idea of the museum while collecting antiques ten years ago. So far the project has cost 14 million U.S. dollars (5.4 million Sterling).
