Visit if you like old artifacts and Thai culture

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.

This is a great place to visit if you want to learn about Thai culture. They have brought in a lot of traditional Thai wooden houses, filled with fantastic artifacts and Thai cultural objects. They are really well displayed and curated. The gardens there are also fantastic. It is certainly as good as Jim Thompson's house which most tourists go... More

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.

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 into a locker behind the front desk. Aside from the front desk lady leading you... More

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
