There is an entrance fee but do not let this put you off, it is 200 baht for Thais and 300 baht for tourists. You do get a guided tour, this museum has amazing exhibits and will will come away with a good knowledge of the local Lanna culture

I wanted to take my non-Thai husband and our two kids to visit this museum. My husband wanted to get the tickets ahead of the visit, returned empty-handed and told me why. Our (50% Thai) kids would have had to pay double (B200 instead of B100 for "Thai" kids) while my husband would be admitted for B300 while I would... More

This place is expensive: 200 baht/Thai, 300 baht/Foreigners. However, that does include a personal guided tour. For someone not familiar with the ethnic groups in SE Asia and southern China the explanations could perhaps be confusing. Similarly, it would help to have a good understanding of Theravada Buddhist iconography. That said, even without such knowledge there are hundreds of interesting... More

This place is wonderful. You get a wonder taste of northern Thailand people and culture and how it all intertwines with Laos, Cambodia etc It is a wonderful collection of history and pictures that is a must visit location if you are here.

The museum was just a small house with a small area around. It was full of precious collectibles in the world, though. Don't miss it.

We were not sure whether this place would be worth the entry fee but it surely was. We had a guide for our family and she spoke English reasonably well (much better than our Thai anyway). We learned a lot about Lanna Region, the numerous kingdoms of the area and the differences between them. We loved learning more about the... More

Found this museum to be very enjoyable. The docent was very knowledgeable about the artifacts and history of the museum. Apparently the owner is an elderly gentleman who still resides somewhere on the property. He was a teacher and was concerned that not many people were collecting artifacts that represented the Lanna style culture and heritage. So - he did.... More

This private museum, owned by a rich Thai collector, and presented by fluent guides provides great insights and cultural treasures of the Lana culture of northeast Thailand. This museum was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at and we're glad it was.

This is a private museum with a 300 baht entrance fee, but this got us a personal tour by a guide whose English was pretty good. There are rooms after rooms of special treasures from the Lanna kingdoms. The layout is easy to wander around after the guided tour and just enjoy the wonderful ambience and the local tea provided...
