Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our private guide took us through the Portuguese old quarters of Bangkok. Such a unique and off the beaten path. Not touristy at all. This museum/restaurant is a key stop in any tour of this area. Lovely cool courtyard, great stop for a drink. The museum is within this old villa and has lots of interesting artifacts .

Google Maps helped us find this museum as it is hidden in a small soi off to one side of the church, but we thought it was worth finding. It seems a surprise to find a Portuguese community in the midst of the city of Bangkok!

The exhibits show a wide range of family furniture and belongings across generations. We found it particularly interesting as we have visited Portugal several times. Also the exhibits included many personal items from the owner's time in London, where we used to live.

A well-curated collection, well worth seeking out. Afterwards you can sit in the garden and relax with a coffee or a cold drink.

Hugely impressed with the quality and content of the museum. Beautifully curated (both Thai and English) with interesting and relevant artifacts. Well worth a visit and "kudos" to the two sisters who explained how they had established and are maintaining the museum - lovely attached coffee shop and small souvenir shop. Well worth a visit.

Take the MRT to Sanam Chai and a short walk to the river ferry crossing (6 THB). Baan Kudichin Museum is along a small Soi as the side of Santa Cruz Church.

Loved this museum during a visit to Bangkok’s Portuguese Qtr. The Museum is located along a tiny Soi adjacent to Santa Cruz Church. It has been set up by a family whose ancestors are the original Portuguese settlers in this location. The museum has lots of interesting historical facts about the arrival of Portuguese to Siam and their influence in present day Thailand which is fascinating. You’ll be surprised to know that somethings considered quintessentially “Thai” was actually introduced. The museum also houses a lovely cafe with indoor and outdoor seating and serves some traditional eats. Great way to take a break. The souvenir shop has lots of interesting locally made handicraft at very reasonable prices. Because the museum is free to enter its nice way to give something back to support the upkeep.

The Baan Kudichin Museum is a hidden diamond for all who are interested in Portuguese culture and the memories of 500 years of portuguese influence in Thailand, religiously and culinarily.
Please take a look to the nice Santa Cruz Church in this christian neighbourhood. From here, you always can visit the Bairro da Conceição, which has a statue of Maria, Mater Domini de Fátima, donated by Dom Duarte de Portugal.

A pleasant museum/café close to Santa Cruz Church in the small Portuguese enclave of Bangkok. Well worth a visit and now much easier to access from Sanam Chai MRT Station. If you eat at the café be prepared for a long wait and confusion over your order; service is not their strong point.

I enjoyed my afternoon spent in this charming little museum housed in a 100-year-old house. The museum was very personal, showcasing not only a section on early Portugese settlers in Bangkok, but the late owners personal belongings, stories and photos. The late owner appeared to be a kindred spirit; he kept everything (ticket stubs, NHS health records, air tickets, old architecture textbooks,) from his time studying in the UK, and I enjoyed poking through all the exhibits. The museum is privately owned and does not charge entrance fees. I highly recommend you have a bite to eat in the little cafe on the ground floor and buy some of their beautiful postcards.

Going there is part of the whole adventure. Take BTS to Saphan Thaksin, then express boat line in direction Nonthaburi until station 7 and finally cross the river by ferry. The museum is located in a rabbit warren of narrow paths but there's clear signage. Other attractions in the area are 100-year-old bakeries that serve only one type of Portugese pastry, Santa Cruz church, a mosque and Hokkien Chinese temple, and a couple of Buddhist temples that were not your usual Thai temples. Kudichin is absolutely off the usual tourist path, an oasis of calm.

This is a old town in Bangkok on the Thonburi side. Mostly they are the Christian and do the bakery as the original recipe more than 100 years.
