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

This place is interesting especially if you are interested in Thai history especially Rama 5 period. An oasis in the BKK city centre could easily be missed but possibly its more interesting to Thais than tourists. Many relics and artifacts on show but photo opportunities...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

Off a very busy street but a short walk from Phaya Thai skytrain. Staff are very helpful. One building is a museum with ancient artefacts, then there are several teal houses to visit. The laqueur house is very beautiful. The rooms with the musical instruments...More
