The facade of this building is impressive and representative of architecture from another era. THB200 admission fee per adult, approx AUD$8.

It was lovely to wander through this old mansion, once a school. Exhibits were comprehensive and all were translated into English. Cost of 200Baht is worth it. Although we didn't go inside the attached cafe, it looked very good.

The building is distinguished looking, rather grand and has lovely architecture. It once served as a Chinese school. Nothing much to see in this museum and the artifacts are pretty ordinary. The building is a respite from the hot weather outside though.
