Sangalok Museum.
Sep 2018
This Museum close to the main Archeological Sites in Sukothai, is a worthwhile addition to the normal tour of the area, and houses many of the artifacts discovered while the main sites all around were being investigated and catalogued. Well worth a visit, but check the opening hours ! They are not the same as the Park !

Well organized museum

Well organized museum in two separate buildings. The walking Buddha is in building 2. Museum entrance is just across the street from the main entrance to the Historical Park Site.

Superb Ceramics Fix
Nov 2017
If you like pots, old pots, you'll love this place. I hit the doors at opening time at 9:00 am, so for much of the time it was me and the guide, that's it. A private museum owned by the hotel next door, thankfully this man has a passion to preserve these marvellous ceramics for the future, and is pleased to share them with the rest of us. Downstairs is a well ordered route around the history of ceramics in Sukhothai and places further afield in South East Asia, and upstairs some remarkable objects linking art with Buddhist philosophy. Thankfully I did read most to both guide books while going around, unfortunately you cannot buy them to take them away to remind you of the pleasure you've had.
When you leave, head into the old town near the Historical Park and have a look around Suthep Sangkalok for how they make it today, ceramic plates and pots of all types, and statuary too!You'll want to take some home for sure, I did.

A visit here is a must before a trip to the Historic Parks.

You must visit here to learn the local history before a trip to any of the Historic Parks. You can learn so much about the area and the put what you see at the Parks into perspective.

History through ceramicware
Jun 2016 • Solo
They have guidebooks in several languages to learn many more details about all the exhibits. It is interesting to learn more about the history of international trade and ceramics production techniques. The artistic exhibits upstairs have stories about some Buddhist iconography and legends

Good Private Ceramic Collection
Feb 2016 • Couples
This private collection includes ceramic utensils produced up to almost a 1000 years ago. One gets a good view of the craft over many hundreds of years. Perhaps what is most beautiful are the ceramic art works displayed on the 2nd floor. If the museum seems closed, go into the Ananda building and a guide will open it for you (100 baht admission fee). Note that the museum is oriented sideways to the street and shares an entrance with "Ananda Museum Gallery Hotel". See photo.

Centuries Old Ceramics
Nov 2015 • Friends
Sukhothai ceramics produced in numerous kilns through throughout the Sukhothai realm from the 12-14th Centuries are world famous and eagerly sought after by collectors, who will pay top money for good pieces.

Sangkhalok Museum in the modern city of Sukhothai, is a collection of more than 2000 priceless pieces from this fascinating period at the beginning of Thai nationhood.

They are housed in a custom built private museum, and admission is a modest 100 baht.

Exhibits also include equally priceless ceramics from China, Vietnam, The Khmer Empire and Burma, which were traded back and forth with Sukhothai.

There are also smaller exhibits of Sukhothai era bronze objects including swords, knives, bangles and other jewellery, and semi precious stone and glass necklaces from the same period.

The museum has a small gift shop and I bought a magnificent reproduction Celadon Sukhothai plate measuring 40 cm across for only 1200 baht, which is less than I would have to pay for an ordinary plate of that size in any Bangkok shopping centre.,
