The museum and the garden are well worth a visit, the grounds are nicely kept, the exhibits are in good condition and give a good insight in Thai culture and history. . Entrance fee is only 100 THB, which makes it a much cheaper alternative to Jim Thompson house. The museum can be reached easily from Phaya Thai BTS station.

Suan Pakkad in Thai would mean Garden of Cabbage (Bak Choi). This little gem's structure is actually sitting on what was originally the Bak Choi growing area thus her name Suan Pakad. The museum houses the findings from the Ban Chang period of that region. The exhibits were in good condition especially the metal wares that were dug up. A... More

The museum portion of the facility is quite small. The grounds are well kept and offer some picturesque photo oops. I would say you could budget an hour and still have time to spare. Cute, but not essential.

Nice museum and garden but it’s not a must. Plan a short trip. You cannot spend more than 45-60 minutes. Not much to see.

The palace is not very big but there are exhibitions for you to go and have a look. The exhibitions are change monthly. It is not the most interesting attraction in Bangkok but if you have a spare few hours you can go have a look. It is near the airport rail link station so you can go before you... More

A short walk brings you from the Phyathay station of the skytrain to a hidden place surrounded by high modern buildings. Traditional Thai houses were collected and reassembled to form an interesting ensemble of various collections (pottery, statues, porcelaine, ect.) Particularly fine is the exhitbion about the Ban Chiang Culture and its famous and unique pottery, which you can find... More

It's very easy to get to, just take the BTS skytrain to Phaya Thai station, get off at exit 4. turn right, at the first interesection turn right again. Walk about 200 meters and the museum entrance is on the right in the middle... More

If you're looking for some peace and quiet away from Bangkok craziness this is the place for you. The garden is small but beautiful and tranquil. Some exibits are more interesting than others, and I particularly liked the traditional thai bedroom with the silk bedding and intricate perfume bottles.

I've taken a few people to this place. Its not hard to get too if you're anywhere near Siam Square. If you're looking for a bit of history and to discover what it was like to live in BKK 100 years ago, this place has a number of original structures, it has a good assortment of items of historical value...
