Ramkhamhaeng National Museum (GPS: xxzz; Thai: พิพิธภัณฑสถานแห่งชาติรามคำแหง ) is a museum at Sukhothai Historical Park, in Sukhothai, Thailand. Opened by the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit in 1964, it was named after the king who founded Sukhothai. The museum is one of the most comprehensive of the provincial branches of the National Museum of Thailand. The museum is located next to the eastern entrance to the historical park.

The Ramkhamhaeng National Museum provides a showcase for artefacts of ancient Thailand, primarily of Sukhothai, but also that of Si Satchanalai, Kamphaeng Phet, Phichit and Phetchabun. Some of the important Buddha statues of Sukhothai have been relocated from their original site to this museum for better safekeeping and display, and to prevent further weathering of the elements. These include items from Wat Mahathat, Wat Phra Phai Luang, and other ruins. There are also stone artefacts displayed in the garden outside the museum building.

In addition to artefacts that are native to Thailand, the Ramkhamhaeng National Museum also displays foreign artefacts that were introduced into Thailand during ancient times. This includes porcelain pieces from the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties which were found in Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai.
