Samut Songkhram Life Museum and Chaipattana Park

Conserving the area's culture

More on Amphawa
Within you can see senior residents of Amphawa displaying how to weave baskets, shuck meat from a coconut and pound a specific type of regional rice called khao thom.
Travelfish says:

The museum also houses a handful of antiques and old photographs, but it’s open only on weekends. Walk through the back doorways of the museum (or just east of where Phracha Uthit Road begins across from Rama II Park) and you’ll find Chaipattana Park, which was set up by the royally funded Chaipattana cultural conservation organisation and is something of a common ground among Amphawa residents.

Along with a few cafes and vendors selling Thai salads and sweets on weekends, you’ll find a handful of galleries devoted to works by Samut Songkhram area artists. Admission is free.
