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

I loved not only the traditional houses and antique furnishings, which were duly “princely”, but also the collection of ancient pottery, jewelry and tools from Ban Chieng – up to 5600 years old. Very interesting history of a great civilization.

This is a nice little museum, with traditional Thai houses and artefacts, and a pretty garden as well. The neighborhood is not particularly attractive though. Entry is 100 bahts.
