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

  • Wonderful museum with English signage on displays and also narrations from the engaging audio visual presentations. It deserves much more visitors than its getting now but the upshot is a tranquil and unhurried visit for those in the know. Our two hours passed by in a breeze. Free lockers for your bags. Highly recommended!

  • Worth visiting. Although small but hosts a range of ancient Thailand history. Minimal entrance fee.

  • Full of history about Chiang Mai👍👍👍👍 be prepared for 3hrs++ if you want to know the detail. Available in Thai and English... Well-done to the video and 3D preparation.👍👍

  • Pieces from historical events in the building of Thailand empire. Not much items though. Audio and visual clips did help one to understand some of the displayed items.

  • Very nice collection. If you are in Chiang Mai, visit the museum. Several statues are of very high level.
