By getting there, you can consider it as a kind of old museum. You are allowed to walk around to see all antiques, including silverware and fabrics. You will see all rooms in the house. You can even dress in Thai traditional costumes and then take some nice photos. You will feel like you’re in a period-drama Thai TV series.

Beside of admiring those things, you will want to go below the house, as the area is for demonstrating fabric weaving. That is a valuable Thai intellect. So, make sure you watch it before your leave.

Feel free to get there from 9:00-17:00. The house is closed every Monday and Tuesday.
