In the centre of the city, here is a haven of green and traditional low-rise. The quantity of the exhibits is almost overwhelming, especially if you do not have a Thai cultural and historical peg to hang it all on. And the labeling/interpretation materials need to be revised to make them easier to read - gold lettering on dark background... More

We went here to the "Cabbage Field" palace museum as part of out ship's tour into Bangkok. The interior grounds are pretty, but we were rushed through the exhibits so fast we couldn't understand what the museum guide was saying. Plus we had to take shoes off to go inside rooms; then put them back on to continue walking; take... More

Palace where the King’s nephew lived before it was given over to the state. Opportunity to see some typical Thai houses which are now quite rare in Bangkok. There are also some historical collections of pottery, shells, etc dotted around the site but not my cup of tea. Possibly worth popping in if you are passing but not worth a... More

This place is an easy 5 minute walk from a Skytrain station. The grass and trees of the outdoor area are very pleasant. There are good displays of very old ceramics (going back thousands of years) and jewellery. Not many visitors made it relaxing.

Our guide (provided gratis by the museum) was humorous and informative. The gardens are a respite from the noise and bustle of the city. The old teaks houses are attractive and contain interesting collections of various aspects of Thai culture. it's sad that this museum seems overlooked; when we visited there were only 2 other visitors.

I visited November 2016. I got there early and was one of only 3 people there. I found it to be very interesting. There are many old artifacts here and a good tale of how many of them where discovered. There are a few different buildings to look in that hold many different things. Thai history goes back further than... More

Nice and quiet museum close to the Victory monument. The staff at the ticket counter is very hospitable. The museum displays the traditional buildings also displayed at the Jim Thompson museum; however, this place is muss less visited and thus a great contrast and place for a moment of retreat in Bangkok.

I went here with a group and we planned to take photos in the garden with the Thai house as a background while wearing some traditional Thai clothing. This man at the reception wearing some thick black glasses informed us that they don't allow people to take photos in the vicinity wearing Thai costume. He did not give any LOGICAL... More
