  • Who interest in the prehistoric history of Thailand--in particular the ban Chiang culture - who is right here. Furthermore, there to see several small, but quite interesting collections. The exhibitions can be seen as Museum known something from Jim Thomson in traditional Thai houses. Only the entrance with THB 100 is slightly high.

  • 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 !
  • A very pleasant and peaceful way to spend a few hours taking in the varied Thai historical artifacts and architecture.
  • 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

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance.
