About this Place Of Interest

Tang Toh Kang was founded about 120 years ago by a group of goldsmiths and gold traders in Thailand. The seven-storey building was one of the tallest buildings in the country in the 1920’s. The interior of this colonial building has a touch of Chinese architecture while its exterior was designed by a Dutch architect. The building that used to run as a gold factory is now a museum. Old-looking goldsmithing tools, such as hammers, tongs, tweezers and metal shears, can be seen at the museum. Apart from that, visitors will see clay jars placed alongside the tools.
