The Suan Pakkad Palace Museum consists of eight traditional Thai-style houses. House 1 is located on the north side of the property, with a covered bridge leading to Houses 2-4 on the south side. Houses 5-8 stand to the west. House 7 is dedicated to Khon, the traditional masked play, while House 8 displays part of the Ban Chiang collection.
The main garden is at the far end to the south and is the site of the Lacquer Pavilion. A well-preserved collection of Ayutthaya-style gold paintings on black lacquer is on display inside.
The last building is the Chumbhot-Pantip Centre of Arts. Built in 1993, it houses the Ban-Chiang Museum, the Marsi Gallery and the foundation office.There are also a multi-purpose room for art and cultural events and a public library.
Suan Pakkad Palace is often forgotten when one visits Bangkok. Yet, we highly recommend for those who are into architecture and arts. Perfect condition Thai-style house aside, you will get to see many interesting exhibitions related to Thai arts. The admission fee is very reasonable.
