  • Palace where the King’s nephew lived before it was given over to the state. Opportunity to see some typical Thai houses which are now quite rare in Bangkok. There are also some historical collections ...  more »
  • We liked most the House and the surroundings to the Museum. It is advisable to disconnect from the stress and noise of the city.

  • I enjoyed my visit. Quiet, peaceful and pretty interesting. You could spend an hour setting the collections, but the setting in a pleasant garden is the real attraction.
  • Should see the Baan Chieng pre-historic pottery. The guilded mural of thai style pavillion is superb.
  • Nice museum and garden but it’s not a must. Plan a short trip. You cannot spend more than 45-60 minutes. Not much to see.
  • It's a nice museum in fact better than some other famous museums here. Highly Recommended.
  • Great to be able to have a glimpse into the past.
