The Jim Thompson House is a memorial museum to an American business man who established a silk export business in Thailand in the mid 1900's. Jim Thompson embraced Thai culture as evidenced by the style and decorations of his house. To add to the interesting life of Mr. Thompson, he disappeared mysteriously in 1967, leaving behind a thriving business still successful to this day.
