This little palace is very interesting. The guided tour for 100 baht is informative. Take along some water and snacks and enjoy the garden.

A five minute walk from Phaya Thai BTS along Thanon Si Ayutthaya Rd, next to the Deja Hospital, as this quaint museum with a unique collection of ancient artifacts, beautiful wooden traditional Thai-style houses and immaculately kept gardens. There is a nominal entrance fee, which gets you a guided tour and a free bamboo fan, but I thought it was... More

Around 10 mins walk from Phaya Thai BTS, its a small low rise museum with a few wooden buildings that houses various exhibits. I find some of the royal paraphernalia interesting and looking at how lived when they resided here. Other than that, this takes a minimal amount of time to cover and is good if you like a bit...

A good way for people not having enough time to visit the "classic" museums, to have at least seen a nice and interesting one, in a peaceful atmosphere, avoiding the crowd! N.B: No photos inside...;)

I've wanted to see this museum on past trips but finally went. It was a good 1/2 hour walk from my hotel, Century Park but worth it. the hotel is btween the Phaya Thai Hospital and the Phaya Thai BTS Skytrain Station. It's a very inexpensive entry fee and very nice quiet place to visit. You first see some of... More

A visit to this museum is quite inexpensive and the grounds are pretty, but the museum has seen better days. During my visit, many of the exhibits were dirty, not working or closed. I would not have chosen to see this museum, but I was travelling with a friend who had been to Bangkok several times before and wanted to... More

I was going to go to the Grand Palace, but the day was hot, and the transportation to that part of town is challenging. Also, it was getting late. So, I chose a different destination, the underappreciated Suan Pakkad. Just a five-minute walk from the Phaya Thai Skytrain station sits some of the last vestiges of traditional architecture in this... More

whilst it is in the shadow of the Skytrain, inside the complex it is very quiet and cool. The 8 houses are really worth taking the time to visit and has many interesting artifacts to view. It is very peaceful and whilst I was there I think I only saw about another 6 people. It is far better if one... More

Suan Pakkad is made of interconnected exhibits, some more interesting than others. Reception suggested where I should start and how I should go about wandering and I followed it. Started off with some recovered artifacts from Thai ancestors. Then went on to see historical furniture and sculptures. The next few exhibits were about buddhas, temples and sacred text, traditional Thai... More

We don't normally "do" museums but we were encouraged to visit Suan Packard after seeing it in a Guidebook and reading reviews on this site. It was easy to find,take the Skytrain to Phaya Thai station, take Exit 4 ( NOT Exit 5,mentioned elsewhere!) follow the pavement around to the right and then keep straight on for 150m, the palace...
