About Museum

There are a lot of museums in Bangkok, but we have a special one that we suggest you must to visit once you come to Bangkok, Bangkokian Museum, or sometime we called u201cBangkok Folk Museumu201du00a0consists mostly of four beautiful houses preserved in perfect condition from last century. The first house is the largest and more beautiful one, with immaculately varnished flooring and green painted wooden walls. The ground floor includes the dining rooms, offices and library, while upstairs are the bedrooms with their cute very old fashion en-suite bathrooms. Every room has original Bakelite switches, antique standing clocks, massive valve radios and cabinets with encrusted nacre.

What’ s inside?

A second, smaller house, originally built in the countryside, deconstructed and reassembled here in Bangkok. The style is clearly different almost all walls, floors and ceilings are made of dark reddish teakwood and features a lot more windows and less wall space. The ground floor appears to be a small dining area and office and the upper floor is a large bedroom with a spotlessly waxed floor.nnThe last two classic houses is a larger, and more recent building used as a museum of eclectic objects collected at any given time in the past, most of them without apparent historical value, and some even appear to be very recent. Upstairs is a gallery of photos taken around Bangkok and Thailand in the past centuries.nnThe Bangkokian Museum is hard to find and itu2019s not even so well known. But it is more of a charming stop than a real museum visit. If you happen to explore this part of Bangkok riverside please visit and makes a nice photo opportunity.
