  • For rest from the usually hussle, this is a nice spot to see a bit of old Bangkok. Loved the house and there were many lovely pieces to see. The staff is lovely and helpful. A nice stop when visiting ...  more »
  • One of the few original corners of Bangkok and unaffected by the devastating mass tourism. An oase of peace and quiet, otherwise free.

  • Very interesting museum, the collection is very rich, from the British colonial era to the 50's all over the exhibition, there is also a display of the whole history of Bangkok. The collection is very rich, the city is divided into three buildings, originally for private housing later donated to the city for exhibition. It's free of charge, and the people in the room are very well-off! People who come to Bangkok for the first time or want to learn more about the history and ancient scenery of Thailand can come here with different experiences! Although there is no Chinese but the display is available in English can be photographed.

  • A wonderful oasis of calm in this bustling city. This museum offers 3 houses for us to explore with personal family possessions, furniture, and items used in everyday living presented simply and honestly. There is also a list and cool garden to enjoy. The friendly staff are exceptional. Enthusiastic and happy to try to speak in English and help me explore and enjoy the museum . What a special place.
  • An authentic beautiful old place, I felt the history at every corner there and I had a very nice time. The workers are very polite and cheerful. Entering is free.
  • Nice, quiet spot in the city. Entrance is free and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The museum features 3 houses filled with carefully curated items of the owners from the 1920s-30s to the presentHas a library and a garden where you can feed fish. Worth spending 30 minutes to an hour there for a pleasant time.
  • It's free! 2 of the buildings are houses which are made to look exactly as they were in prewar Bangkok. I was happily surprised that the 3rd buildong, which was more of the museum/informative area, was air conditioned. Friendly staff and interesting enough experience to spend an hour or so.
  • Exceptional representation of the typical high society family from the early 20th century. The staff can't barely speak English and their isn't many English explanation decals.
