|Jim Thompson Museum|
This remarkable Thai-style house is named after the man who created it from several exceptional examples of traditional Thai domestic architecture. The American Jim Thmpson came to Thailand at the end of World War II and became famous for reviving the Thai silk industry before disappearing under mysterious circumstances somewhere in Malaysia. Now a museum, the house is located at the end of Soi Kasemsan 2, opposite the National Museum. On permanent display are Jim Thompson's connoisseur collections of Asia artefacts and antiques.
