Suan Pakkad Palace Museum Reviews & Ratings
Nice place and staff. Our guide was really bubbly and had decent conversational English skills. You would be finding a lot of old artifacts, artworks, and cultural stuff from Thailand here. Suan Pakkad means Cabbage Farm, it was named after the plantations in the place during older times. Unfortunately, a lot of the items are either not dated or not recognized as to where they came from and what era since most of the artifacts are gifts to the young prince and his wife who started the museum. :)
An unmissable attraction in Bangkok, this museum showcases relics dating from 3000 B.C. all the way to 300 years from now. The environment is calm and soothing, you're pulled out from the bustling metropolis to a place so magical it seems unreal.
It is nice if you like history and artifacts. This is a pretty low-key environment in the heart of the city. I walked through alone and it was very enjoyable.
Beautiful museum - very quiet when we visited. Lovely place to take some time out of the city.
Nice palace. Interesting museum of the Ban Chiang bronze age civilization
