    Located in the shadow of the skyscrapers in this tropical paradise, close to the BTS station. The guidebooks don't really propagate, and that would be why. But maybe so because there was no crowd, and you could see everything. In many ways, is similar to the legekbe raised by Jim Thomson House, yet we are much better. On the one hand in a much larger, dzsungelszerű park, on the other hand the large shade trees its traditional thai wooden serious values. The entrance must be provided to the customer for delivery of everything, just the water and your camera. When one of the building's two inches off a priceless Chinese vázától ácsorogtam, then I fell down, no matter what the reason. Very serious collection ranked the princely couple, for thousands of years the Japanese szamurájkardokon Asian leletektől over the Italian porcelain étkészletig in pretty much everything you see in the thematically arranged in Saint Petersburg. As the tour was led by Jim Thomson House, but it was much longer, almost 2 hours held, so far held the huge park, and chalets. The houses from the varnish floors and thai customs because only bare feet could run within the buildings and could not take pictures.

    A very pleasant and peaceful way to spend a few hours taking in the varied Thai historical artifacts and architecture. Some display rooms are air conditioned but some are naturally drafty, especially in the morning. Free artisanal fan provided additional cooling. Not a crowded place during our visit. Not expensive at all.

    Very nice and quiet museum in the midst of hectic Bangkok. Many houses and things to look at. Cheap entrance, 100 baht at time of writing. Very tranquil place to relax a little.

    I visited November 2016. I got there early and was one of only 3 people there. I found it to be very interesting. There are many old artifacts here and a good tale of how many of them where discovered. There are a few different buildings to look in that hold many different things. Thai history goes back further than I thought !

    Similar to the Jim Thompson house, but not required to do a guided tour. Has a great exhibit that ranges from musical instruments to pottery to jewelry and most importantly the house architecture. Well worth a visit and only 100 baht. Includes lockers and a complimentary fan
