This museum opened its doors in 2013. Its exhibition gives a short overview of the culture and history of the Chinese population of Udon Thani. Like other Southeast Asian towns and cities Udon Thani was "made" by Chinese merchants and entrepeneurs.

Among the Southeast Asia countries, Thailand has a large population of Chinese ethnic people. This is a distinctive Chinese shrine with deep Confucius impact, with many teaching and tales about filial piety. Worth taking a look since it's free.

This is the Chinese shrine I talked about in my new submission about Chaleom Phrakiat Park which should be approved shortly. And one of the features that really makes Chaleom Phrakiat Park the best destination, in my opinion, for a day spent in Udon Thani. It is anything but a typical Chinese shrine by a pond.

Magnificent museum showcasing Thai-Chinese relations, the influence of Chinese beliefs that passed on through from their ancestors to the descendants. Enjoyed the 3D documentary about the place's fresh history. Pleasant walk in Chinese garden or go pay respect and ask for good blessings from the revered Grandma and Grandpa deities. :)
