“Overview”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

If you don't have time to visit a Hill Tribe village or wonder about the ethics of such a visit, this is an excellent way to get an understanding of these people. Good, informative displays. Information in English. Good explanatory video. Worth a visit.

“Great If you like exploring different tribes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

As I said this museum is small but is good if you are into cross cultural analysis and like to know more about the tribes and their relations. The video shown has a lot of revealing information, though the edition is not pro. It needs to improve a lot but they are in the right track. There's a souvenir shop and a free cup of coffee downstairs. Cost 50 bth to enter. If you don't like reading or learning about aboriginal tribes avoid this place cause you are not gonna like it, for me was really interesting cause I'm into social development.

“Just an experience.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The hill tribe museum is not far from the black house. There are 5-6 tribes in the museum. The most interesting was to see the long neck ladies. Most of the tribes produce some products for selling to the tourists. It would be nice if anybody who visit them will purchase some products from them.

“A Bit Bizarre”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The museum can be located above the restaurant Cabbages & Condoms. Have to be honest I was a little underwhelmed as a lot of the information was from old newspapers. I wouldn't say it's worth a visit but if you've got 20 or so minutes spare then pop in as there is some interesting information / artefacts on each tribe.

“Good time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Went there to see the culture of the hill tribes. I did not have time to go to the hilltribes on the border.This village was ok. The hill tribe people sang a song and then you moved to the next hut where they would sing another song and dance. Saw only 6 hill tribe people with he long necks. There is a pricing system where they charge you more because you are a foreigner. You are better to go to the ones in the hills near the border if you have time .
