I have read that some reviewers have complained of a lack of information. Perhaps we were just lucky (or perhaps the policy has changed) but one of the attendants, without any prompting from us, took us round the museum and gave us an interesting and...More

Ok, this is one of those places you could get away with not visiting if you're out of time. Better to see Jim Thompson's house as that's exquisite. This museum is well priced and overall we enjoyed the visit. Sits in a fairly crappy area...More
