This small museum is filled with art treasures. It was the former home of Jim Thompson, the legendary American who helped revive the silk industry in Thailand.
Situated on the banks of a canal just opposite a silk weaving village, the home consists of traditional Thai style buildings filled with an interesting collection of antiques.
Bangkok National Museum is worth a visit, as it is located nearby the Grand Palace. It houses a large collection of Thai art and artifacts in the country.
In addition, there are interesting collections in the decorative arts and ethnological collection, including Chinese weapons, gold treasures, precious stones, Khon masks, puppets, ceramics, clothing and textiles, woodcarving and traditional musical instruments from around Southeast Asia.
