I love art that is displayed in a residential setting and find many art galleries and museums a little sterile. the house is actually a collection of buildings and the small complex almost creates typical Thai village atmosphere. Guided tours (in various languages) are compulsory and well worth the 100 BHT fee. There's also a good restaurant attached, serving Thai and European dishes.
