What people are saying:

Shoes must be taken off when entering the hall, and a small cabinet is provided for storing items. Photography is prohibited in most areas of the museum, and guides where you can take pictures will also be intimately informed. The whole building is built of teak wood without using a single nail. There are many antiques and artworks collected by Mr. Thompson, which is very tasteful.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Jim Thompson House is a cluster of buildings covered in greenery and the former home of Jim Thompson, an American silk entrepreneur and art collector. The entire building comprises a classic Thai-style garden. Thompson collected a variety of abandoned Thai houses and structures in central Thailand and reassembled them in 1959. Comprising six buildings, the exterior is centered around a red color, with the structure suspended over a small canal. There is a yard in the middle filled with flowers and plants—a beautiful sight to behold.
