  • I enjoyed my visit here. Great way to spend a bit of time indoors, escape the heat (or rain) and learn something about the local culture.  more »

  • Love this museum ... 1. Informative about Lanna people. 2. The displays are well organised and rich in categories, from Lanna people daily life to sculpture and musical instruments. I found that the mural painting attract me the most. 3. We were lucky as we met students intern at the museum and offer us a tour (some of them are international students and they can speak English or Chinese). 4. And I guess the best part is that they have good quality (in term of translating) and quantity of English & Chinese (plus Thai) explanation plates make the visit worthwhile. Additional tips: You may be interested to find out the history of the building (the court house setting is still there in one of the room).
  • Great museum. Great staff. I was surprised. It went beyond my expectations. Be sure to visit upstairs. Music, dress, culture and lifestyle info presented artfully.
  • Thailand hill tribe museum. The museum features many hill tribe daily-life items and clothings. The permanent exhibition was very detailed. However, you need to read all the boards and signs to actually learn the stories since the they just put things to display without much interactive features. Good (but not ideal) place to learn about the hilltribr people in Thailand. They also have English signs.
  • Very informative museum about the Lanna people and traditions. Museum exbihit explanations are available in Thai and English. Entrance fee is 90 Baht but it is possible to get a combined ticket with the other museums nearby. Front desk staff was helpful. Restrooms are available.
  • A good museum that focuses on the history and culture of northern Thailand. The displays are well done. The staff is helpful.
