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.

What a great little museum to visit in Bangkok. 100 bht to enter and we had a fabulous guide all the way round. Highly recommend this as a must see.

The Suan Pakkad was a maybe on our list, but we were near it and we had the time, so we went. The buildings were nice and they did have some fun and interesting things to see. They don't allow interior pictures though, that's always a bummer in my book. The garden area was fine, but we saw much prettier gardens elsewhere.

Bottom line---I'm glad we saw it while we were in Bangkok, but I'm glad we didn't go out of our way for it or give up seeing something else for it.

We visited the museum during our second visit in Bangkok. Beautiful place with a few ancient Thai style houses and a lovely small garden. The museum is very clean and well maintained. The kind lady that was guiding me and my daughter was fantastic. She taught us a lot about the history of Thailand and the culture. She was one of the very few Thai people that was able to talk in English, she even spoke a few German words… We are very happy about our visit!

This small museum sits in the heart of bustling Bangkok. There is a tranquil garden surrounded by old Thai houses. Each house has beautifully displayed artifacts from various time periods.

Very cute museum! 100 baht. Pictures inside building are not allowed. Outside you can take as many pictures as you want. Just an FYI. The best way to describe the museum is that is an enclosed compound. Multiple buildings with upper walkways with tons of history. I think they caught me taking pictures so there was a lady that followed me around and basically gave me a guide tour, unless they do that for everyone. I tipped her 100baht because it was well worth the knowledge.

The comparison with Jim Thompson's House is immediate: Suan Pakkad Palace has a much richer collection of art and antiquities, it is much more complete from a historical-artistic point of view and also the entrance ticket costs only 100 baht. The visit is definitely worth the cost of the ticket. As soon as you enter, if you wish, you can follow one of the guides who will accompany you along the entire tour. There are several Thai-style houses with all sorts of antiques and objects of great artistic and historical value in every room. Based on my personal experience, I can say that, comparing it with Jim Thompson's House, here you will really have an encounter with Thai artistic history while for the garden and extra offerings, Jim Thompson's House is superior. In any case, go and visit it, you will not regret it.

For some reason, tourists prefer to visit Jim Thompson's house than Suan Pakkad Palace Museum. I found the latter even more interesting! 7 traditional Thai houses (+1 modern) in the middle of a tropical garden in the city that used to belong to the grandchild of King Rama V. The houses are full of artefacts from Southeast Asia and China, it is really interesting as it is explained by a guide (guided visit, about 1h+, entry fee 100 THB for foreigners/50 THB for Thai people). As we were the only visitors, we had a private tour with a nice guide.

Suan Pakkad or cabbage garden used to be the house of the grandson of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) but is now a museum. There are 8 rooms connected into a spacious house. In the rooms many artefacts from different countries and periods, not only Thai. Pottery, jewellery, carvings, musical instruments etc. Not a typical tourist place, so quiet. If you want to enjoy something different I could recommend to spend around 2 hours here. Photography inside is not allowed and entrance fee is 100 baht.

Our guide suggested going here because it would be cool (temperature-wise!), interesting and quiet - and she was right! The three of us were the only visitors there. Interesting collection of houses and artefacts collected by a member of the Thai Royal Family. A lovely hour spent in the cool - in peace! - in frantic Bangkok.

Nothing too exciting but if you have time to kill in Bangkok, go for it as it is not very famous to tourists as well. It’s calm and peaceful.
