I was not sure when I drove to this place especially when we had to drive to thru some of the local roads. However, it was great! The kids enjoy the day and learn so much and I have such a lovely time captured that!...More
They have made an interesting museum where we get a glimpse into local history and most of all: How it all started, from The Big Bang! Tribute to Ministry of Natural Resources for making more than 20 videos you can watch on your trip through...More
It is an interesting (and free the day we visited) museum especially for kids with motorised dinosaurs. I also learnt for that there is a dino named after the place and princess of Thailand. There is another park a few km from the museum called...More
The Museum is a nice place with motorised dinosaurs outside and inside the museum. You get also an introduction of the "big bang" our solar system and the different prehistorical timezones. Very unique dinosaurs "siamosorus". Worth visiting. But the best is a few km further...More
Great place for kids and grown ups alike. Admission fee is only 60 Baht per person and it explains very well the history of the earth from the big bang to today.
Unfortunately a bit remote and the restaurant was closed so hunger drove us...More
This place is very educational. There have been so many dinosaur finds here.
This area was mainly vegetarian types whereas the other side of Khonkaen towards Kalasin are meat eaters.
If you look on Google Maps at this area you can see the mountain formation...More

Thanks for interesting in Phu wiang Dinosaur museum (PDM). You can visit here directly from Khonkean City by van. The front of PDM, there has a resort and restaurant that u can stay overnight and grab some food or you can choose homestay. We have real bones of dinosaur and the dinosaur that can move around, close to the museum is Phuwiang National park that it shows the real sites of dinosaur excavation.
Not possible at all if you plan to travel by their local transport. Srinihorn museum is located in another town - Kalasin, about 120km from Khon Kaen. It is newer and a most complete excavation site in Asia, size is bigger... More
Not possible at all if you plan to travel by their local transport. Srinihorn museum is located in another town - Kalasin, about 120km from Khon Kaen. It is newer and a most complete excavation site in Asia, size is bigger than a football field and located about 200m from the Srinihorn Museum. The amount of time to spend visiting it is shorter since this newer museum was built near to this excavation site.
For phu wiang, it is located near Phu Wiang town , about 90km from Khon Kaen. However, you need to travel a few kilometres from phu wiang museum to the 4 excavated sites (which are open to public) located in the Phu Wiang National Park. All these 4 sites require walking and some climbing. The exhibits and information in both museums are similar. I would have chosen to just visit Srinihorn because it is more impressive to me.
Please note that both museums are close for maintainence on every Monday. Please check online in case they change the day of closure...
