  • This place gives a fair overview of former houses in Thailand. Is nice to see. They have everything well waxed and nicely put down. Thats what the temples are tired of this is fun to visit.

  • Wonderfully interesting Museum contains relics and curiosities, in addition to the original furniture that gives these wooden houses an authentic flavour and retro now rare to breathe in Thailand, particularly in Bangkok. The guided tour allows us to appreciate the whole route and what has been said. Note especially the rooms devoted to traditional musical instruments. Our guide, particularly ferrata and with good English, he explained the differences between ns and their staff and between our lead times/rhythms and their. Even better than Jim Thomson, as meta less hackneyed and more collection.

  • 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.
  • Totally overlooked but worthwhile palace complex with a great story and eclectic collectors ranging from prehistoric to seashells.
  • I had an amazing time here! Especially the last part, amazing!
  • 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.
