Nice middle class house (in fact three buildings). Furnishings and items from the 1950s so not that ancient. Interpretations mostly in Thai. Maybe of more interest to Thais than foreigners.

This museum is an old home of a well educated lady's family, unlike those national museum, it is small and full of furnitures that reflects the Thai people's living style esp of the WWII period. We spent around one and a half hour here. The...More

What a delightful place! The house gives a good impression of the daily life of the late owner of the place.

I had read this museum was a hidden gem, but actually it was not so special. The traditional house complex was beautiful to visit, but then the items displayed are not exceptional. It just makes people realize that globalization started long time back as a...More

Nice hidden gem in the small lane near Silom/ Surawong Road. A place that brings lots of childhood memories in terms of some of the kitchen wares, telephones, sewing machines, etc. There is refurbishment going on to give a new look to the quaint house....More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
