6 Soi Kasemsan 2, Rama 1 Road, Bangkok, Thailand, 10330more pictures / bigger pictures – click here
Former home of American businessman James H.W. Thompson who moved to Bangkok and started the Thai silk industry after World War II.
Today, his home is a museum of classic Thai structures that contains his amazing collection of Asian art from the 1950’s and 60’s.
Open daily, with a guided tour. Jim Thompson House can be reached by the skytrain at National Stadium station (Exit 1).
“Had a couple of hours free and decided to visit (based on this site suggestion). Easy to find from the National Stadium BTS - just down a side street immediately before the Holiday Inn Hotel.
Entry fee of 150 baht includes a 30 minute guided tour of the house in English (tours in other languages were also available). More interesting that I thought it would be. Nothing to do with silk making, more about the man himself and the history of the house and its contents.
There is a shop where you can buy JT products and a good café / restaurant.“
