Information

Owned and run by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, the museum features three houses in a breezy garden with a small pond. The two-storey house in front was formerly the residence of the Surawadee family, and was built in 1937. The various rooms in the house give an obvious sense of how much influence Western culture had on Thailand during that period, with wine and martini glasses sitting neatly in a display case in the dining room and an antique gramophone in the main hall. The house also features an old-fashioned Western-style toilet, a European-style dressing room, as well as a bedroom that features a wooden four-poster, canopy-draped bed.
