Take your time, learn the history of the present monarchy. You will understand why Thai people loved Rama IX that passed away in 2016. It's a good history lesson!

This is quite an amazing building, which houses a remarkable set of objects. A broad range of topics are covered by the exhibits and it gives a great deal to think about. Excellent interactive activity towards the exit. Really interesting.

The 4 and 6 year old did find this quite boring. A lot of great information written about transforming the opium trade of Thailand. Takes a while if you want to read everything.

A good spot to learn about the royal family and the deeds they have done. I will leave it up to the individual visitors if those deeds were altruistic and out weigh the down sides of royalty. It did give me some insights about things...More

The Hall provides a fascinating history about the work and life of the King and his family and the development they have overseen particularly around this area of Thailand. Very modern styling, using video, photos and artefacts and some interactive facilities

Truly excellent and not only am I inspired but I have great respect for the King's Mother. Spent about 2 hours reading and taking pictures. Do not miss this museum. It's a 'must visit' when in Chiangrai. It's about 50km away from the city.
