Jim Thompson was an American businessman and former spy that helped revive the forlorn Thai silk industry on the heels of World War II. Right after his mysterious disappearance, his house was repurposed as a museum to showcase Thompson's vast collection of paintings, ceramics, and woven masterpieces. Get a deeper appreciation for the beauty Southeast Asia has to offer through the sprawling artworks across the compound.
