“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Nicely done small museum on Lanna folk crafts and lifestyle. Good English signs and explanations. There are 3 museums nearby and you can buy museum pass for 3 and use on other days. Nice museum cafe. Clean restrooms. Allocate approximately one hour or so. a/c.

“Interesting - worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

A nice way to get an overview about the tribes and history. Take advantage of the short films they have in some of the display rooms. There's a small shop and restaurant.

“Excellent introduction to Lanna culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We found this museum to be a really interesting look at lots of different aspects of Lanna (northern Thai) culture. Each room focuses on one aspect with explanations in English and Thai along with artefacts and dioramas to show how local people lived. I think they are adding to it too as there were more exhibits open than were shown on the leaflet we received at the ticket desk.

“Spending Half-day Museum Tour in Chiang Mai Old City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Start at Three Kings Monument, there are 3 museums close to each other where you can spend your half day travel in the old city. Chiang Mai Historical Museum, Lanna Art Museum, and Culture Museum are situated in the center of the old city with just couple of dollars ticket fee. After the program you can relax your body with massage by women prisoners behind the museum. Rows of local restaurants are also situated near by the place where you can enjoy clean and tasty local dishes.
