Also known as the Bangkok Folk Museum, the Bangkokian Museum is a hidden treasure full of structures and artifacts from pre-World War 2 Bangkok. Made up of three heritage houses, this museum is a collection of all the objects the Suravadee family has accumulated over the years of their stay in this little plot of land. The main house shows how the typical Chinese-Thai middle-class family lived many years ago, while the second house features the kitchen and woodworking area containing all sorts of knickknacks from cooking utensils and candy tins to old calendars and vintage magazines. The third house was the home of a doctor who rented the place from the family, and you can enjoy looking at some artworks there as well.
