Not as grand as the top sights in Bangkok but if you have already visited the major attractions or if you are trying to escape the crowds while enjoying some museum pieces, I would highly recommend. The pottery is quite unique as it's particular style...More

Nice beautiful teak houses. The museum is not big but it can give you a taste of Thai culture. It consists of old teak houses that were converted to a museum. The place is easily accessible by BTS.

No tour buses here. For awhile I was the only one. Lots of vegetation and old historic buildings transported to this location. Also some archeology artifacts of early Ban Chiang culture. Some rooms air conditioned and some not. Enjoyed my visit.

A nice place to visit for the price if you are interested in Thai culture. Other similar museums in the city are the Bangkokian museum and Kamthieng house.

I was looking at things to do when this little gem came across my maps. It's less than a mile away from my hostel in Phaya Tai. It's 100 baht for an entrance fee. They also request for you to put any bags you have...More
