  • A nice place to visit for the price if you are interested in Thai culture. Other similar museums in the city are the Suan Pakkard museum and Kamthieng house.  more »
  • Not huge but a decent way to spend an hour or so. Entry is free and there's a fair bit to see. I would be nice though if some more of the information was translated into English so we could really tak...  more »
  • The museum is free built in the early 1900's. It has wooden furniture and items from post war family life, it is quite interesting and takes about an hour to look round. It is down a side street and y...  more »

  • The museum consists of 3 buildings. You can spend less than 15 mins there...or a few hours like us. The staff is very friendly and attentively. She provided us very good info, then gave us plenty of time to enjoy ourselves and take pictures. When we continued to the next section, she came back to guide us and offered more info. We had a great time there and it is so educational! The weather is a bit very warm (I mean we were soaked), but we still took our time to check out the museum. It is free! Also, we went when it offered free snack and tea! It was a big plus!!!!
  • This is an interesting little museum. It's an old-style residence that was turned into a museum. It's old, but not that old. It's a snapshot back in time about sixty years ago. There are three buildings. It's very hot with no air conditioning, and the buildings don't have elevators.
  • A must visit. ..a wonderful collection of old arefacts from the family who used to live in the house...the house is beautiful too with wooden floors and staircases and rooms done out in how the family lived. ..fabulous photographs as well of he family and old Bangkok
  • If you're looking to get a look at a group of homes (4 buildings) built In the 1920's-1930's belonging to an upper-middle class family, then you'll want to put this on your list. The grounds are beautiful with a lot of foliage and a sense of calm. The homes have all the household items, pictures and furnishings that belonged to the family who lived there. All rooms are labeled with an explanation of what you're looking at. In the last building you'll find an exhibit about the history and growth of Bangkok. This part was unexpected and I have to say I found it really interesting. There was a very sweet man who guided us around the complex, but wasn't a tour guide. He kept his distance enough where we didn't feel like he was on top of us. This attraction is free, however, at the end you'll see two boxes asking for a tip and maintenance of the buildings.
  • Must see for those who wants to get a real sense of how Thai middle class family lived a half century ago. Free entrance.
