This historic home on tiny Pak Kretisland once belonged to KruMontriTramote, a notable Thai musician who lived during the reign of King Rama V until King Rama IX. Acclaimed as a national artist in 1985, he composed more than 200 songs, including the most famous one, called Som Song Saeng. The house is open to the public, offering a peek into KruMontriTramote’s simple way of life, based on Buddhist principles of non-materialism. This warm and pleasant house continues to be occupied by his descendants. In the same compound, there is an exhibit on KruMontriTramote’s biography, his works and as well as displays of the original copies of his songs – from the first, composed at age 20, to the his last, written at age 91.
Nowadays, the house is also the site of a Thai musical school which holds classes every weekend. In addition, on the second Sunday of each February, a ceremony is held to honor Thai music teachers, with free admission.
The home is located on Tiwanon 3 Road, SoiPhichayanan 2, TambonTaladKhwan, Amphoe Pak Kret, Nonthaburi. To get there, take the No. 32 or 33 bus.
