  • I loved not only the traditional houses and antique furnishings, which were duly “princely”, but also the collection of ancient pottery, jewelry and tools from Ban Chieng – up to 5600 years old. Very ...  more »
  • This is a nice little museum, with traditional Thai houses and artefacts, and a pretty garden as well. The neighborhood is not particularly attractive though. Entry is 100 bahts.  more »
  • Went to google maps, and accessible by BTS. From the train station 10 minutes walk. Easy-to-understand it character assassination even exit. Location is quiet and slow.

  • So everyone goes straight to Jim Thompson house but a couple more stops north on the Sukhumvit line there's this amazing palace that I think is a must-visit if you have the time. It's made of different traditional Thai teak buildings and it holds the art and other collections of a late royal couple. When you go in you get assigned a guide and you're given a small bamboo fan as a gift. The guide will take you around explaining what you see at each building.
  • Good museum in the center of Bangkok. Unfortunately with a double price policy, but proof of residence will give you the Thai price
  • The Suan Pakkad Palace is the first museum in Thailand where the owner, their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Chumbhot of Nagara Svarga, decided to convert their private residence, built in the traditional Thai style opened in 1952. There are groups of 4 traditional Thai houses with the covered hallway between them. Houses 5 to 8 are located along the west side of the property. The Lacquer Pavilion stands in the main garden to the south of the compound. The Ban-Chiang Museum [Thai Heritage] and Marsi Gallery are in the Chumbhot-Pantip Centre of Arts. Absolutely worth a visit when you are in Bangkok.
  • Rambling. No photos inside. Pond with huge catfish. Early artefacts (metal, glass & pottery) amazing. Good collection of shells and interesting mineral samples (very dusty). Many attendents to keep you in line. Nice royal barge. Garden plants helpfully labelled. Allow a few hours to take it all in.
  • A lovely break from the noise of the city. An oasis of peace
