Chiang Mai National Museum - Review
Recently renovated, Chiang Mai's National Museum is well worth a visit.
The museum has an up-to-date and modern showcase for the heritage of Lanna. The downstairs area shows the historical development of the north of Thailand from Pre-Neolithic times to the present. There are models and paintings depicting legends and historical events, also scenes of the way of life in olden days. There are show cases with ceramics that have been excavated from the famous fourteenth sixteenth century kilns of the old Kingdom of Lanna - Kalong, Sangkampaeng, Lampang and so on.. There are cases filled with bronze and gold jewellery and other artefacts. Everywhere are fine examples of Buddha statues. Upstairs are collections of old farming and handicraft tools, wood carvings, old photographs and superb textiles.
The spacious grounds house the northern region archaeological research centre. Two ancient kilns have been excavated and rebuilt in the grounds.

Chiang Mai National Museum, Chiang Mai Reviews
Make sure to bring your passport with you. Easy to find. Lots of parking space. It is not really big but it has some interesting pieces. Mainly about art and religion. Some of the pieces lack the specific information like materials, antiquity, or context in general. You can watch some videos in English and Chinese. Overall, its worth the visit.
Other nationals do carry your passport while checking here. It is not big but some special points of Thailands history can be understood.
Alot of media interaction. To many information. Its good.
A nice place to visit. Good value but a pittyful of not so popular for tourist.
Nice museum. A bit outside the city but well worth the visit to get an overview of thai history, particularly in the north.
