Right amongst busy streets and hotels is this small northern Thai museum constructed from original houses moves from Chang Mai. 100Bht to learn a little about northern Thai communities in this quiet place was great value

Located behind Emquartier mall. Small but nice museum/reconstructed house that gives you an example of life in a traditional Lanna house. Worth checking it out for 60 minutes at only 100 baht. Bring bug spray. The only bites we got in BKK were here.
