  • Medium sized and not too much of the natural history museum, into the vicinity of charge charge of 100 Thai baht. Sell placed mainly Buddhist religious objects and Museum National supplies, can have Userboxes/Time and likes the natural history museum, about an hour to finish.

  • National Museum, a large scale is under renovation so entering from the back and not see only part was disappointing. On the other hand was free.

  • The museum was under renovation works so the entrance was free. The exhibition was interesting but very small. I don't know if it is bigger when fully open.
  • Good place to visit to learn more about Thailand and its History, appeared that it has been newly renovated and was 100THB each which was good for what was there! we probably spent about 2 hours there
  • My visit was December 2016. There was renovation work going on at the time. I found it to be very interesting as I wondered around reading the information and looking at all the items on display. Some videos to watch also. Free entry which is always a winner. Any bags etc you put into a locker.
  • Hard for a westerns to get to grips with but interesting none the less. Better descriptions of exhibits needed.
  • Interesting view of the role Chiang Mai played in the early days of the country

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.
