Anyone visited M.R. Kukrits Heritage House in Silom area

My hotel is nearby this house and I'd like to visit. Do you know how long the tour would be and what time it begins, Also regarding Jim Thompson house and Museum, what are the times they do English Tours. Thank you. Alana

We visited this house museum last trip. The tour (which is individualized, you'll have your own guide) is perhaps an hour. It is open only on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. I posted about this last November. (If you did a search here on Kukrit, you'd find my brief report and the reports of others).

At the Jim Thompson House they do English tours about every 20 minutes to half hour, depending on the flow of people for an English tour.

The tour takes about 1/2 hour. They leave throughout the day. this place is well worth the time investment.

The JT house also has English tours throughout the day. eating lunch in the cafe is very pleasant, so plan to be at the house before lunch, tour and then relax.

I visited the house a few years ago and thought it was quite worthwhile. I've done a report on it that you can pull up. Happy Travels!

Thanks everyone for replies. I hadn't thought of doing a search about the house on the forum. I do plan to have lunch after JT tour in their cafe. Alana

Are you also going to see the Suan Pakard House? It's a short taxi ride from the JT House
