An oasis in the city that informs and educates. The staff are helpful and efficient. Well worth a couple of hours to learn about the history of the region.

They've got bilingual information presenting the history of Khon Kaen and Isann. Very quiet and cool with air-cons. Exhibition room is pretty cool cuz you can see the models of the ancient time. :) Free for Thais 10 or 20 Baht for Foreigners (I don't remember)

When I visited, I saw a group of students with a teacher, so obviously very good learning sources and good destination for educational purposes. It was pity that there were short time power-cut several times during my visit.

Interesting place to visit and learning about Khon Kaen. And this is the relax place for reading your books because it's calm and chilling.

Interesting - if you like old Buddha statues and amulets. Not much anything in English so some objects make you guessing what they are and for what purpose they were made for. Place has been totally redone with nice taste but the rural household display is rather funny, like something we made in school plays a long time ago. Better... More

Quite an interesting place to while away an hour or two at most, out of the sun. Mostly very local artifacts , which are labelled in both Thai and English. A smallish museum on two floors and was very quiet with only about 6 other people (Thai's) visiting at the same time as myself. Luckily I was with a Local... More
