There is so much history at the Jim Thompson House. I definitely recommend visiting while in Bangkok. Once you pay you can take an English or French tour of the home. They have a nice restaurant on site.
Jim Thompson is a famous museum here. It is belong to American Veteran who really crazy in love with Thai Cultures.
He built this museum dedicated to his passion. Not only museum, but this place serves restaurant, silk gallery, and other attractions.
