This is a good starting point before you enter the park . There is some good artifacts but unless you are a true historian I wouldn't linger more than an hour . There is so much more to see outside!!

This museum is full of ancient stuff like Buddha statues from many places. There are English and Thai description in every exhibition so don't worry about misunderstanding things. You need at least 1.30 hrs to explore all.

The entrance to the museum is over the road from the Charot Withithong Road entrance to the Sukhothai Historical Park. 150 baht entry, it is a great museum and worth finding some time to visit. Built in 1963 to house finds from local archaeological digs, there is a lot to see in the three buildings and displays in the well... More

Not a whole lot to review here. Not much of a welcome from staff either. Some of the photographic and printed exhibits are very faded. There are lots of Budda statues but nothing inspiring.

At the end of my visit of 13 wats, my tuktuk driver took me to this beautiful museum. Entrance fee is 150 bahts per person. After paying the entrance fee, I was told to leave my bag inside a "closet" and to keep its related key. The exhibits are located inside an air-conditioned building. There are two floors of exhibits... More

The history of Thailand is all shown here. Take time to read the card placements and learn more about some of the sights you have seen or are about to see

We visited Sukhothai Historical Park at dawn, out for breakfast, and into the park again. After lunch when the heat is max, just visit the national museum. It has the replication of Wat Srichum now-closed tunnel, so you know what it is like. Stroll inside the museum and learn more about Sukhothai history, then out to visit the park again... More

outside of visiting the unesco park, it is a must to put everything together with a museum visit that will give you a full history along with an impressive display of artifacts. just opposite the main park entrance.
