Was staying around the corner from here and this museum came up on my tripadvisor as being nearby so I decided to visit. From Phaya Thai station it is literally a 5 minute walk. It was 100 baht to visit and I was given a leaflet and a woven fan as a gift. The grounds are stunning! There is a... More

the owner is and still a descendent of royal family, their house is typical thai style and a beautiful example of how the Thai Architecture can reveal . Exhibition area offer various artefacts that owner collect from ancient eras of Thailand. It is worth a visit also easily walkable from BTS skytrain Phyathai station.

there wasn't much to do around the area,... we came here on our way back from chatuchak market,... this was an interesting museum with more emphasis on household objects,... a good place if you want to rest a bit in the middle of hot and humid day,...

The nearest BTS skytrain is Phya Thai then you walk about 10 minutes to reach the palace. It was a palace of a rich Chinese man. The rooms display interesting art and cultural collections. So you need about an hour of time to appreciate what is on display.

I've walked past this place so many times I just had to find time to visit. It's like jumping back to a bygone era and is lots of fun to wander around for an hour or so. There is a collection of old wooden houses, each housing different artefacts such a ancient pottery and relics from Bang Chiang (in Udon... More

The house look perfectly clean. I can feel the calm while the busy road surrounding. I could learn a lots of thing from Thai culture and history from there. Worth a visit. The place is seem like a small museum with many things to see about the culture of Thai people.

I enjoyed this far more than Jim Thompson House. Amazing room after amazing room of interesting and diverse collections. The Lacquer Pavillion must be seen in person no picture could truly represent the art. My guide was so good and delightful. This place is a short walk from the SkyTrain. I highly recommend this as a "must see" attraction.

Same as the Siam Society and Jim Thomson house it consists of several Thai wooden traditional houses with nice decor and artifacts, surrounded by a splendid garden. They also have a stone building with artifacts.
