Jim Thompson House Museum in Bangkok

The story of Jim Thompson is still talked about today over 50 years after his disappearance. He was known as a person who single-handedly reawakened the Thai silk trade in the 1950s.

Jim Thompson House Museum in Bangkok is still open today and celebrates the life and times of this interesting man and his love for Thai silk. The house is located on the banks of the Saen Saeb Canal in Bangkok. It enjoys lovely gardens and six traditional Thai teak wooden houses that today are like a museum of Jim’s past and his soiree into the world of Thai silk manufacturing and trading.   

If you are a fan of art collection and happen to be in Bangkok Jim Thompson House Museum is a must-visit place for you.
