Take a glimpse into the home life of a prosperous Bangkok family around the time of the Second World War. The compound’s first building was constructed in 1937, and on display throughout the entire two-storey, four-building site are many carefully preserved furnishings and objects from the period. The family’s tastes reveal strong Western and particularly European influences in features such as a Western-style toilet and four-poster canopied bed, both quite rare in Bangkok homes at the time. Also within the grounds are delightful gardens with small pond.
From our hotel, guests can walk to the museum in about 10 minutes. The Bangkokian Museum is opened from Wednesday to Sunday, 10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. No admission fee but donations accepted.
