Neilson Hays Library, Bangkok

3.7
#43 of 89 in Museums in Bangkok
NOTE: Neilson Hays Library's historic main building is closed and undergoing much-needed restoration. In the meantime, we've moved about 4,000 books into a mini-library in our cafe space, so members can still check out books. Our weekly 10:30am Saturday Story Time is next door at the British Club during the restoration.

  • This is an interesting place to visit. The library is open every day except Monday. There is a coffee shop, but at the moment (June 2018) it is under renovation. You can sit and read if you want. Non-members are asked to give a donation of TB 100. Only members can borrow a book and take it home. Most (perhaps all) books are in English.
  • We walked nearby and entered this cafe for breakfast. The food was below average. The price was above average. I asked if I could use my credit card (JCB), they said yes but eventually it did not work. The staff was not helpful and the whole bad experience was time consuming, including the long time that we waited for our meals.
  • Nice library, but with odor of dust from old books
  • Lovely Saturday readings for kids. Children's book collection is pretty wide.
  • Loud with obnoxious patrons probably members who think they own the library.
