The Black House is a museum housing the work of art of its founder Thawan Duchanee. It is also known as BaanDam and is situated about 12 km from Chiang rai. It’s often labelled as the White Temple’s counterpart. There are a number of buildings here within the compound garden. Entrance to the compound was by purchase of a ticket for 80 Baht. In the main building there was a large wooden table with large black chairs arranged around it. The table was laid with snake and crocodile skins. Among other things here includes animal bones and skins. The teem of the exhibits appeared to be ‘Black and Death’ You can stroll in the garden to peep into the other buildings, which you can’t actually go in. Generally the place is shady and you are protected from the heat. We spent about 2 hours here. Since the temple was a bit far from the city centre, we booked a round trip and had the driver to wait for us. You can also Visit the blue temple (Wat Rong Suea Ten) 9km away and Wat Huay Pla Kang (Big Guan Yin Temple) which is 11 km away.

Nice art exhibition - and thanks Covid at this time no people. The elderly staff (man) at the entrance was very unfriendly, may be frustrated... but this takes one star away of the rating. And people over 60 have free entrance but only Thais... The 80 Baht Entrance fee is reasonable for what you can explore inside. Art in black looks quite special.

A strange place! Definitely worth a visit and the small entrance fee. A collection of black buildings of interesting and attractive shapes with great carvings. Filled with weird and wonderful items! A few other buildings like the white igloo stupas and the grey hornbill building. A pleasant hour or so wandering around these many artefacts in 100 acre grounds.

The wide area composed of lots of art things and nice architectural building. You have to spend the whole day for scanning all art in the museum. Tawan is the most famous artist in Thailand. Besides the art pieces, he collected lots of valuable and beautiful pieces of natural things, too.

Some interesting and stunning buildings, with some weird artifacts on display. Nice and peaceful walk around, took about 1 hour. Some of the buildings were closed to public. Not far out of town, so it was worth a look.
