A pleasant place to visit but only if you have time. It is an easy walk from Phaya Thai station and 100 Baht admission. You have to leave personal items in a locker and can just take a camera. However you can't leave luggage, if you are on your way to the airport train. The grounds and teak houses are lovely. When I was there, a guide took a small group of us around. Some of the exhibits (eg the archeological section) are worth seeing. The rocks are something you could see in any museum. It is similar to the Jim Thompson House in some ways.

The buildings are lovely and the special exhibits are informative. There's lots to see, some of it quite interesting and some of it only a bit. It's also nice to be able to walk about at your own pace.

I had the misfortune of visiting the day after a major event and it was impossible to get good photos from the garden (the only area you're allowed to take photos). With all the workers running around, and all the chaos, it was hard to get a sense of what it used to be like when they lived there. My score is based on what I think it would be like, not my actual experience.

I really enjoyed my visit here. I think it's just as nice as the Jim Thompson houses, but not as busy, and you are free to walk around yourself instead of taking a packed guide tour. The houses are well-preserved and it's fun to imagine how people lived in them years ago. Some of the displays on the ground level are lame and touristy - a seashell collection, a dusty rock collection that aren't even that pretty. But there's also some very old Thai pottery and jewelry that is interesting.

Eight Thai teak houses set in a lovely garden in the centre of town, with few visitors
A lovely palace used by one of the Royal princesses. A mixed collection of things “Royal” in this small museum, musical instruments, home things, lacquer collection etc a really eclectic mix.
Rather fast guided tour around the buildings with lots of information but the guide had a very strong ascent and was a bit hard to understand at times.
If you want a restful place to get away the hubbub of Bangkok try this for a restful hour. It’s less that a five minute walk from the Phaya Thai BTS station so easy to find.
