  • The first day the King birthday, Shea was a step in the hut, watching a second visit. A variety of Buddha was interesting, the fish is drawn from two Lanna culture cares about Marie looked like well. A variety of exhibits, but interesting enough to be visible.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Hard for a westerns to get to grips with but interesting none the less. Better descriptions of exhibits needed.
  • Awesome, just come check it out and have a cup!

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.
