Jim Thompson House, Bangkok: 69 reviews and 128 photos
The Jim Thompson House & Museum is a worthwhile sightseeing destination in Bangkok.
Jim Thompson was an American, rumored to be a CIA agent, who fell in love with Thailand. Thompson is credited with revitalizing the Thai silk industry and even was awarded the highest honor for a foreigner, the Order of the White Elephant.
The story of Thompson's life and the mystery of his disappearance all add to the allure of the wonderful collection of Thai artifacts in his home. Thompson was not just a collector but he was also seeking to preserve Thailand's history from destruction.
The house & museum are open for guided tours from 0900 to 1700. The tour takes approximately 30 minutes and costs 100TBH.
