Hidden down in Thaketa Township, a 15 minute taxi from Downtown, this place has so much going for it but isn't really publicized. Set on a fairly large block of land, it has the 7 main ethnic groups represented by traditional houses etc, and all of the people who work in the houses/displays are actually from that group. There is... More

Visited on a weekday morning.The place is pretty deserted save for a few local couples. Was expecting some locals from the respective tribes to introduce their cultures but none; contrary to what is shown on the brochures provided. Overall quite a serene visit to spend a morning.

What I like about this is you get to see how different ethnic groups live traditionally. You go around the country and you might not see like this in real life nowadays. You see a lot of imported or industry building products which totally killed the real culture. Can't blame them as those are more readily available in market. Beside... More

There are bicyles and Horse carriage ready for rent in the park but we decided to take the truck buggy to give us a free & easy quick tour of the whole place. The park is extensively spread out with buildings and houses of 8 indigenous ethnic groups with display of artifacts, tools & furniture denoting various national native groups... More

This is a place that one should visit if you want to know more about the culture of the different states in Myanmar. Lots of different house designs, with different tribes of different states. Entrance fee is reasonable for a foreigner, 3000 kyat. Locals also visit this place, and even have picnic with their families near the lake.

A very pleasant visit in the park with an insight into the culture of Myanmar people. We went on a public holiday so quite busy and extra things such as entertainment was being performed on the stage. We saw many people in National dress. All very enjoyable.

This open air museum (or exhibition) tries to show the visitors life in different states of Myanmar. Copies of houses from different regions contains lot of artefacts from a daily life of villagers. Plus some artificially built mountains or a waterfall. Very popular is a renting of local national dress to visitors who make nice selfies afterwards. Additionally, there is... More
