Situated out towards the Don Mueang Airport, the modern building is just off the beaten path. To be honest, most taxi drivers have never even heard of it. In actuality, most Bangkok residents haven’t. But, don’t let that stop your adventure, because a truly amazing collection is awaiting your visit.
