  • One of the destination more than once my head while taking a walk in the old town area. Let alone to enter this place is indeed not cited cost. This old house-style typical of the architecture of Lana. Very impressive and photogenic. There are spacious lawns in front of him. Very worth it to just drop by a look into the museum.

  • Beautiful and peaceful place. There's a really cute cafe where we had breakfast with italian moka coffee and delicious cakes. The girl in the cafe is really nice. Love It!
  • "Khum Chao Burirat, constructed during the reign of King Rama V, was originally a residence for Chao Burirat (Maha-In), a grandson of Chao Luang Khamfan (the third ruler of Chiang Mai). The building was later inherited to Chao Noi Chomchuen Na Chiang Mai, a son of Chao Burirat, from 1894 to 1946 before Chao Butsaba Na Chiang Mai, a wife of Chao Noi Chomchuen, selling it toMrs. Buaphan Nikonphan (Thipmonthon) in 1947. The house became an inheritance of Thipmonthon family until Riangphan Thipmonthon and Kitibut family gave this building to Chiang Mai University on 9th March 2001 to serve as the office of Lanna Architecture Center under the control of Faculty of Architecture, Chiang Mai University. Combining Western and Traditional Lanna architectures, Khum Chao Burirat is a 2-storey building whose ground floor was built of thick cemented bricks in arch form and surrounded by passageways. The upper floor features teak floors as well as wooden walls, doors and windows. Balconies encircle the upper floor in which railings, balustrades and balusters are wooden openwork. Hip and gable roofs made of terracotta tiles cover the balconies all through. Khum Chao Burirat represents a determination to preserve the significant historical heritage by adapting the building’s functional areas for researching, compiling and exhibiting information to serve as a knowledge hub for students, researchers and general public interested in Lanna architecture."
  • Beautiful traditional Lanna style building with a nice and cozy modern cafe on its grounds. Staff was very helpful. Toilet here is very clean.
  • Colonial building with free entry. The Souvenir shop has beautiful selection of locally handcrafted items.
  • Very nice, well preserved house and garden representing laan architecture. Worth visiting!
