This is an interesting place and also incorporates a tourist shop. The museum, although not as big as the newer opium museum which is situated just out of town, gives a potted history of the production of opium and is well worth a visit.

I would not make a special trip to see this museum but if you find yourself in the area worth stopping in for a short visit. There are a lot of antiquities, information and history revolving the production and use of opium over the centuries.

A very good depiction of the Opium trade and the history of the trade and distribution of it. Also dressed tribal people of the area and thier tribal names. Very interesting and informative.

(NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH HALL OF OPIUM. There are many erroneous reviews on TripAdvisor.) 212 House of Opium Museum had a 50 baht entrance fee. It was a small museum featuring an old-fashioned style of exhibition panels with artefacts and little use of other multimedia.

Very small and punctual. Informative about the Opium seeds, pipes and little of history but it’s something that you can read out the internet really not worthy at all the visit
