outside of visiting the unesco park, it is a must to put everything together with a museum visit that will give you a full history along with an impressive display of artifacts. just opposite the main park entrance.

As a Thai history buff, I really enjoyed this museum a lot, but the layout is not the best. The good part is that there is a lot of English descriptions along with the Thai. This area around Muangkao is rich in Thai history and the museum displays artifacts from the days Sukhothai ruled Siam. BTW if you have a... More

A country cousin's overview of a rich cultural era in SE Asia's history. Worth it but don't expect a first class museum like NY, London, Paris. etc.

Unfortunately much of the museum was closed to visitors which they didn't tell us on the way in (entry 150 baht). There are some lovely exhibits and an interesting reconstruction of the tunnel excavated at Wat Si Chum.

The cost for the museum is 150 Baht, even though the parks are only 100 Baht! However, it is a nice museum, full of interesting things, well laid out and cool. It is right beside the bus stops so is easy to find. Really worth checking out to see all the old artifacts from Sukhothai and around Thailand. It's also... More

Although it's quite a small museum with relatively expensive entrance fee of 150 Baht compared to the 100 Baht for the Sukhothai Historical Park, it provides a very good perspective on the history and context of Sukhothai and Thailand as a Buddhist nation. I really enjoyed the first storey exhibits on the Buddhist narratives and history of King Ramkhamheang who... More

It is a very small museum which is a pity since the town would deserve a much greater one. But it gives a very good background of the history of the place and you will walk away definitely with more wisdom about the history and the religion of the place. As it is airconditioned it may give a nice rest... More

Tip: ticket is 150B, but Thais just pay 30. A huge difference. Cons: awful bathrooms. Rude staff. Overpriced. The museum is a waste of time and money. The 1st building is completely irrelevant. In the 2nd the most interesting thing is the original walking Buddha.
