Hill Tribe Museum, Chiang Rai

3.4
#2 of 6 in Museums in Chiang Rai
Learn about some of the world's swiftly disappearing traditional cultures at Hill Tribe Museum. Aimed at informing visitors about the region in the interest of promoting responsible tourism, the museum preserves the artifacts and customs of Thailand's hill dwelling peoples. Often the subject of misconceptions and persecution, the hill tribe cultures have also been threatened by forced relocation. Watch a 20-minute film before viewing further displays on subjects like the usage of bamboo in the villages and clothing. Take a moment to speak to the curators, who will eagerly share knowledge and advice with you.

  • Small Museum from a NGO with lots of Information about the tribes in north Thailand. The video documentation is in different languages. It has a nice little Shop with OTOP Souvenirs.
  • Good effort was put into creating this a few years ago. There was an unwelcoming atmosphere when I turned up to the place and I was the only person there. The in information was interesting and it's definitely a good place to start if you're thinking of visiting the hilltribes they have a lot of brochures and give advice about ethical tours. 50 baht entrance fee. Authentic hilltribes crafts are available in the gift shop
  • Slideshow should get a new speaker in german language, it's so boring how he talks
  • This is a small musuem on hilltribes that is run by an NGO. The entry fees is Bht 50. They showed us a short documentary on the 6 different tribes and their customs and locations which was quite informative specially on tribes stats. They have 2 small rooms showing the different custumes. The seasonal calendar is quite interesting. Only visit it if you don't have time to see the large hilltribe musuem which is located in Chiang Mai
  • good helpful and small don't wait huge material
