Description:

Created by Sakul Intakul, an internationally-renowned Thai floral artist,...

Created by Sakul Intakul, an internationally-renowned Thai floral artist, The Museum of Floral Culture is Bangkok’s new tourist’s attraction especially developed for those who love floral arts and those who are interested in Thai art and culture with special focus on Thai floral culture which is an important part of the Thai way of life. The Museum of Floral Culture also exhibits important floral cultures from civilizations across Asia such as India, China, Japan, Laos, and Bali in Indonesia. In the exhibits, we employ photographs, artifacts, tools and equipments—used in the creation of floral arts—along with fresh flowers to tell the stories. We would not want to be misleading, but please kindly note not to expect extravagant floral displays as you would see in a flower show. The Museum of Floral Culture is located in the quiet residential area of Dusit District. Built in the reign of King Rama VI, The Museum of Floral Culture is a beautifully preserved 100-year-old teak mansion of colonial architecture, covering the total ground of 1,800 square meters of an impeccably-landscaped Thai-meets-Zen-style garden.There's a little tea shop as part of the museum, and you will definitely want to stop in for a pot of tea and Asian sweets after your tour.

Unfortunately this museum is quite unknown to most tourists. It was set up by a famous floral art master from Thailand who has worked on many domestic and international events. The museum is located in a gorgeous old teak wood villa. The entrance fee of 150 baht includes a guide. The tour is quite educative and will give you an... More

This place is a little hard to find and there is only parking for about three cars. We were the only ones there taking the tour. The tour is a house which was changed to a floriculture museum. To tell you the truth I’d be more interested in it being a house furnished with period style furniture. There is not... More

The museum offers 3 things. One, the chance to get to know the cultures and history of traditional floral works of Thai and neighboring countries i.e. India, Indonesia, China. Two, there's also workshops for those who want to learn making floral works, pendants, bouquets, etc. Three, relaxing and quiet place to sip delicious, aromatic tea. The tea set come with... More

We went there because I love the old house and palace. The trees, the story and staff are wonderful. Therefore it was a bit sad that some decoration in fresh flower is dry out. We had our tea before the tour started and the afternoon tea set is really awesome. The sweets are lovely and I like the tea so... More

Lovely old teak bungalow set in a very quiet old neighborhood in the Dusit area in Bangkok. Fortunately this gem has been preserved and recently converted into a museum dedicated to the art of flower arrangement and its relevance in the Asia context. The owner is a very well knows flower artist who has both Royal appointments and enriches such... More

Meaningful for those who love flowers, history and culture. Probably the only one of it's kind in the world. Local standard. Boat ride is nice but take a taxi/motor cycle to the museum. It's at least 20 mins walk. Tours are every hour or so.

The museum is a hidden jewel and a nice getaway from the overwhelming lively Bangkok. The tea salon offers interesting set of tea drink and sweets. It is not to be missed when visit this museum! The guide was informative, and the museum shop counter has good selection of floral related books and postcards. Overall, it's an enjoyable visit!

I went here with my parents in law who love flowers and gardens. We got the boat from Sapan Taksin, the boat journey is very long, but it's nice to have a trip down the river. The website for the museum shows the place in a much better light than in real life. It was an ok experience, certainly not... More
