The famous Jim Thompson's house is now a museum! If you are still wondering who Jim Thompson was, well he was the man responsible for starting the Thai silk company and manufacturing. His house has many old artifacts from old siam and is an interesting place to visit. Jim Thompson mysteriously disappeared in Malaysia's Cameron Highlands quite some years ago and was never heard of since. There are guided tours at the house in English, Thai, Japanese, and I think Spanish and French. The enterence cost is cheap, if I'm recalling correctly it was somewhere from 40-150 baht.
