Such a great Asian Heritage!

The museum was just a small house with a small area around. It was full of precious collectibles in the world, though. Don't miss it.

We were not sure whether this place would be worth the entry fee but it surely was. We had a guide for our family and she spoke English reasonably well (much better than our Thai anyway). We learned a lot about Lanna Region, the numerous kingdoms of the area and the differences between them. We loved learning more about the... More

Found this museum to be very enjoyable. The docent was very knowledgeable about the artifacts and history of the museum. Apparently the owner is an elderly gentleman who still resides somewhere on the property. He was a teacher and was concerned that not many people were collecting artifacts that represented the Lanna style culture and heritage. So - he did.... More

This private museum, owned by a rich Thai collector, and presented by fluent guides provides great insights and cultural treasures of the Lana culture of northeast Thailand. This museum was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at and we're glad it was.

This is a private museum with a 300 baht entrance fee, but this got us a personal tour by a guide whose English was pretty good. There are rooms after rooms of special treasures from the Lanna kingdoms. The layout is easy to wander around after the guided tour and just enjoy the wonderful ambience and the local tea provided...

A nice collection indeed. It really sparked up my interest for further study. A bit pricey, but worth it. They will provide you with an English speaking guide to explain the collections and answer questions

This private house converted into a museum gives you a historical perspective of the people from the region (northern Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and south-western China). Guide is included with the entrance fees.
