Relatively unchanged since the family lived here, the house provides an authentic and interesting look back at Thai life during the mid-20th century.

The pristine rooms are still decorated with the same furnishings once used by the family, and information provided in every room describes who inhabited these spaces and how they spent their time there.

In addition to the living spaces, there is also a section of the old grounds dedicated to artefacts of the time. Stamp collections, money displays and kitchen utensils from the era all create a comprehensive view of an interesting and often overlooked period in Thai history.


How to get there
The Chao Phraya Express stops N2 and N3 are both a short walk from the Bangkokian Museum. The museum is located on Charoen Krung soi 43, between Charoen Krung and Mahesak Surasak Rds.
