    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.

    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!!!!

    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.

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. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
