Khum Vongburi House Museum is an old-fashioned house, of course. It doesn’t just look old, but it also contains a long-time history. It was built centuries ago from the idea of Lady Bua Tha, the wife of Prince Piriyathepwong, who was the last ruler of Phrae. The house was meant to be the wedding gift of Lady Sunanda and Prince Phongpibul.

As soon as you and your family arrive at the place, just make a stop at the front side. Take a photo with the house as the background first. Really, the house is very beautiful. You will want to have at least one memorial photo. The house is decorated in European-Thai style. It’s covered in pink color and made of teakwood. There are carvings all over. The Khum Vongburi house consists of two levels.

Don’t worry. You and your family can get inside, as it’s a museum now. When you get in, you will see old decoration items, which look very beautiful. Walk around to see the real bedroom, living room, working room, dining room etc. Then you should realize how the owners lived in the past. Anyway, photography is prohibited at some parts of the house. Therefore, you need to be careful.

Also, don’t touch any exhibitions. Remember, they’re really old. They may can’t be fixed if they’re damaged. Just see them with your eyes only.
