  • 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 »

  • Is the Museum is quite noticeable to tourists, but using the old Western-style houses and household items on the display. I think about stopping by if you close enough.

  • 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.
  • When i saw this museum on a website i was delighted this is just my cup of tea! We took a tuck tuck, map and address in hands at around 1 pm. Around an hour after driving through the dense traffic city the driver stopped to ask several other tuck tuck drivers were the museum was, according to the map it shouldn't have been far at all, but none of them ever heard of it! We left the driver n s tarted walking asking passers by, people in shop, cafe... Nobody knew nor have heard of the place n didnt even know the street it was in! We walked like this for 2 hours. It was really draining.... Eventually we found it thanks to a very friendly young girl who worked in a youth hostel n went for a while on the internet in order to help us. But of course by that time, the museum was closed 4pmc c c !!!! So if u decide to go and visit this house, i suggest you go with the boat and stop at pier 1 oriental,then ask for the main post office, or take a taxi or tuck tuck, its the little lane number 43 just across it, at around 200 metres on your right. Dont ask anyone this museum is totaly unknown to the local. Good luck.
  • quiet. peaceful. just what you need for a holiday
  • Good to see how Bangkokians lived in the past
  • It is a quite place worth a visit and it gives you a chance to know the ancient of local people . The well-preserved museum is not too popular and crowded, and it is free of charge . Close at 4 pm .
