I go here whenever I can. It's infinitely preferable to the Jim Thompson House and isn't swamped with tourists. The old buildings are beautifully maintained, as are the lovely gardens. The lacquer pavilion is stunning and worth close inspection. The museum collection with pots from...More

No tour buses here. For awhile I was the only one. Lots of vegetation and old historic buildings transported to this location. Also some archeology artifacts of early Ban Chiang culture. Some rooms air conditioned and some not. Enjoyed my visit.

A nice place to visit for the price if you are interested in Thai culture. Other similar museums in the city are the Bangkokian museum and Kamthieng house.

This place is an easy 5 minute walk from a Skytrain station. The grass and trees of the outdoor area are very pleasant. There are good displays of very old ceramics (going back thousands of years) and jewellery. Not many visitors made it relaxing.

Our guide (provided gratis by the museum) was humorous and informative. The gardens are a respite from the noise and bustle of the city. The old teaks houses are attractive and contain interesting collections of various aspects of Thai culture. it's sad that this museum...More
