Hill tribe Museum and Education Centre is run by a nonprofit organization called the Population and Community Development Association (PDA) with the intention of showcasing the culture of hill tribes in Thailand. This centre exhibits local crafts, all of which are for sale, and also provides information through slideshows (in a number of languages, including English) and anthropological displays. Since many people visit Chiang Rai for an extended trek to see the northern hill tribes, it would be a good idea to understand their culture first through this museum.

  • A number of Songtaews are available from the city centre.

  • Small museum to explain history and background of hill tribes. Ask for the (new'ish?) slide show, available with narritive in multiple languages - it's informative. Exhibit of artefacts is ok, could use some TLC. You can also book tours of the villages here. This seems like a good alternative to the very commercialized tours available in town...

  • Learn about Hilltribes of Thailand and the story about opium in the Golden Triangle. Interesting for who wants to know about Hilltribes people of Thailand

  • I support the stated mission for this organization, I've been here before and possibly will come here again. But my God, it's like they stuck stuff up on the wall in 2000 and walked away. Every thing is so old that it diminished the story they are trying to tell. My other concern is that they fail to tell the whole story. Where did the hill tribe people come from? When? Where are they located? I'm interested in that, but it was not there. I'll Google it when I get home. Go to it! It's only 50 baht, but don't expect a lot.

  • This place was wonderful! They have some excellent exhibits on local tribes, and a lot of information on the opium trade and how it has affected Asia.

  • Best thing here is probably that you can book here a trip to the real hilltribes instead of the tourist attraction villages.
