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.

This excellent history and archaeological museum is a delightful escape from the chaos of Bangkok streets.

This small collection of Thai houses is crammed between a major road, railway line, airport express train and many high rise buildings. Far from being a respite in the city, it’s frankly overwhelmed. If you are serious student of Thai art, there are some important...More
