I’m so glad I made the effort to find this place and it exceeded my expectations. Such a beautiful wooden home with a happy, welcoming atmosphere. As so much of it has been kept and preserved you get a fascinating insight into the middle class...More

Nice middle class house (in fact three buildings). Furnishings and items from the 1950s so not that ancient. Interpretations mostly in Thai. Maybe of more interest to Thais than foreigners.

This museum is an old home of a well educated lady's family, unlike those national museum, it is small and full of furnitures that reflects the Thai people's living style esp of the WWII period. We spent around one and a half hour here. The...More

What a delightful place! The house gives a good impression of the daily life of the late owner of the place.

This museum is definitely one of my favourites places in Bangkok - it's hidden rather far from other attractions, but quite easy to access by Chao Phraya Express Boat. Its hidden between stores and shops so make sure you know the address. You can visit...More

I visited here hoping to get a glimpse of Thai life during World War II. The house is beautiful and the rooms are preserved wonderfully with period furniture. There are also some exhibits on Thai history but much of the material is in Thai only....More

I had read this museum was a hidden gem, but actually it was not so special. The traditional house complex was beautiful to visit, but then the items displayed are not exceptional. It just makes people realize that globalization started long time back as a...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
