NEW Museum of Floral Culture

Jump to last reply

There's a new museum in Bangkok that I think will interest a few of you - you know who you are.

The Museum of Floral Culture was founded by a florist who has done a lot of work for the royal family as well as major events in Thailand and abroad. He has written books on flowers and flower arranging in Thailand, and wanted a museum to document as well as keep alive the role that flowers play in everyday Thai life. The museum occupies a 100 year-old house in the general area of Vimanmek Mansion (Dusit District). The house itself once belonged to a palace guard. There are several displays inside the house as well as the gardens themselves, which aren't particularly flowery, but very traditional. Tours of the museum are guided. There's a little tea shop as part of the museum, and you definitely want to stop in for a pot of tea and Thai sweets after your tour.

A couple of photos and more information can be found on my journal:
