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...

I enjoyed seeing this museum - I have become quite enamored with the Khon masks used in traditional Thai dances, and there is a building devoted to these masks, which I found fascinating. The music room is absolutely breathtaking as well. The only challenge I had was navigating through & making sure I saw everything - I was given a... More

Went here for a teambuilding event so I didn't manage to really see in detail for each exhibit. But what i did see was very breathtaking and informative. They had collection from old artifacts and the history behind them was amazing. The location was near to the hotel that I was stayin - Centara Watergate Pavilion Hotel. And this museum... More

If you stay in the city, why not visit this museum. It isn't big and just so close to the city. The atmosphere is peaceful inside.

So glad I went here! Lovely, serene, calm atmosphere around an eqsquisite collection of old pottery, musical instruments, household wares, Royal boats, religious sculptures - everything was here, but on a small enough scale so you could take it all in. Spent a wonderful morning here, even though it rained. Went to see Jim Thomson's house afterwards - this was... More

Like the Jim Thompson House, Suan Pakkad is a gem of a place for temple-weary visitors, offering an oasis amidst the urban jungle. The Lacquer Pavilion was lovely, as were the traditional houses. I especially liked the house that had a reception area (#4, I think). It's surprising to think that the museum is right on the main road because... More

So nice to see that such places still exist in Bangkok. We enjoyed the wall around the museum, the gardens and the eight traditional team buildings in the compound. A very rich collection is on display and it is heartwarming to see that so many Thai artifacts are still on display in their home country. Well worth a visit for... More
