Overview

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.

Love the Dok Mai Thai Salon du The. Elegant tea with traditional Thai and oriental desserts. Charming atmosphere of the old house. Wish houses around Bangkok are still like this timeless place.

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...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.
