Jim Thompson House
#1 of 101 Museums in Bangkok
The Jim Thompson House is one of those very special places only small museums can let you feel, it has just this "human touch" letting you well imagine what Mr. Thompson's life had been.
As with many house-museums, you should be expect a snapshot in the everyday life of the owner more than some artistic masterpiece, but said that the house has some interesting artefacts too.

#2 of 101 Museums in Bangkok
We love modern art and my husband is an artist as well, so always a highlight to visit contemporary art museums wherever we travel in the world.
I've visited most of the major art and modern art museums in major cities such as London, NY, Paris etc and smaller cities such as San Francisco, Budapest, Florence etc.

... purchases, keep a close eye on your wallet, negotiate for the fun of negotiating, but don't overdo it, and go see the art section, even if you don't want to buy anything - it truly feels like walking in a museum.

Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles
#5 of 101 Museums in Bangkok
An amazing museum, new, well organized, with beautiful outfits from a very glamorous queen, some from european stylists, others created at Thailand, from the thread, usually silk, to the suít/dress.
The quiet of this gorgeous museum was very welcome after the hubbub of the temple sector of the Palace grounds.
