    What to Expect
    Choose a morning or afternoon tour, then meet a driver at your accommodations in downtown Bangkok. Travel to the Jim Thompson house, in the heart of Bangkok’s city center: start by learning the story of the American businessman and traveler, who made it his life’s work to bring Thai silks to the world’s fashion houses, then explore his remarkable home.
    This is one of the best places in Bangkok to see traditional Thai teak homes, as Thompson assembled his using historic houses shipped to Bangkok from around the country. Find out what is known — and what remains a mystery — about Thompson’s 1967 disappearance in the Malaysian jungle, then explore the collection of art that he assembled during 25 years in Thailand.
    Before leaving the museum, you’ll have time to visit the small gift shop with reproductions of artists Vessantara Jataka and Brahma Jati, and enjoy the serene atmosphere of the lush, tropical gardens that surround the house. After visiting the house and gardens, a driver will return you to your accommodations, where this tour concludes.

    The guided tour lasted about 20 minutes. The house is not very large and the volume of visitors is such that they rush you through. We could have gone back and looked at the place again, but it seemed like it wasn't worth it.

    200 baht for the tour of the 6 House about 200 years old that were transported and set up high off the ground by Jim Thompson to make one large home. I recommend the tour which takes 45 minutes.
