Bangkok Folk Museum is a museum in Bangkok, Thailand. It is located at Soi Charoen Krung 43, near the Sri Rat Expressway several hundred metres from the right bank of the Chao Phraya and the intersection of Soi Charoen Krung 43 and Maha Set Road.
Set in a building dating back to the World War II period, the museum offers an insight into the lifestyles of middle-class Bangkokians during World War II and its aftermath. The museum was originally the home of the Suravadee family which was built in 1937, but was converted to the Bangkok Folk Museum to preserve the lifestyle of early Bangkok and the history of Bang Rak district.
The museum consists of two main two-storey buildings and a garden. In an upstairs room of the first, there is an ancestors’ quarters which displays many of the relics of original family members these include the old Benjarong jar made from Thai porcelain in five basic colors. The second building in the Bangkok Folk Museum is at the rear and was once intended to be the home and clinic of Dr. Francis Christian, the stepfather of the owner.
