The building itself is great. There is lots of information about Buddhism. If one is interested in textiles, there are so much about textiles in the exhibits on the 1st floor. One can also learn about farming tools.

Visited the folklife museum today, what an interesting collection of folklife exhibits, from fabrics, local customs, farming tools and practices including local religious beliefs and traditions. What a hidden gem of a museum, not to be missed.

This, far more than the equally beautiful Chiang Mai National Museum, is your go-to spot for the basics of Northern Thai (Lanna) life. Here is where you’ll decode the artefacts and ceremonies of the Buddhist temples, where you’ll come to understand both the craft and symbolism of textiles, lacquerware, ceramics and more. Unlike the National Museum, here you’ll learn exactly what distinguishes a northern Thai Chiang Saen Buddha image from other Thai images. There is no overload of material; each room has an information board and clear examples. Very satisfying.

The museum was quite nice if not a bit small. The exhibits give a really nice insight into Chiang Mai history. I would recommend buying the 180THB ticket that will get you into two other museums right behind Lanna.

As we found ourselves at a little bit of a loss at what to do in Chiang Mai without travelling alot, we decided to visit the Lanna Folklife Museum. We were very pleasantly surprised - for 180baht, access to not only the Folklife Museum but the Historical Centre and Centre for Arts was granted which is amazing value! Fascinating exhibitions and well-organised display which kept us entertained for at least 4hrs and a lovely outside area to reflect on our day. A great day out if you’re in the Old Town Area and some lovely time away from the hustle and bustle of city life :)
