Good visit
Oct 2019
The building is really gorgeous and the exhibits are informative. The highlists for me were the Sriwijaya period statues and the Chinese exhibits. There's even a play area for children to draw. Do note that there's no air-conditioning and there's a dual pricing system (speaking Thai didn't help for myself).

Brief but interesting
Jun 2019
The museum is in the house of a former governor and is just over a hundred years old. Like much of the region it is strongly influenced by the Chinese. The museum through a number of small rooms and displays gives a history of the region and especially its rise and fall. The ability of Thai royalty to change perceptions and actuality is significant. Displays are pictorial and have that and English commentaries. There are attendants but with little English but to be fair the displays are self explanatory. Worth an hour although very hot in summer as fans were switched off. Relatively expensive for visiotors but worth an hour of time. Good brochure in admissions price.

Songkhla early history
Mar 2019 • Friends
The entrance and buildings were great but exhibition wise not as great as at the Folklore Museum at Koyo Island. Here it exhibit Songkhla history from early years-how this land become an important port for trading, different types of religion, the conquer and conquest of the different kingdom. There is a Cafe and toilet on the premise. I recommend to visit here and Folklore Museum to have a better picture of the early years of the region and area.

Songkhla National Museum is collection of antiques. Is a place to study about Songkhla history. The tourist often come to see ancient objects. Museum is quiet and shady. Some people come to picnic

It was eye opener to find out the history of the town. We had a wonderful time walking in the old house which was turned into museum.

Nice place to visit in Songkhla
Sep 2018 • Family
The building housing the Songkhla National Museum was originally built in 1878 by the province's deputy governor. Best you can visit in Songkla to their history. The museum fee is THB.30 (around 90¢) FOC for visitor who is above 60yo. The museum is well organised and tidied, open on Sunday also.Best if his place also have instructors each area if needed.I did visit with my mom.
We had a great time there.

Nice looking buildings
Feb 2018 • Solo
I was unfortunately too late with my timing to be able to go inside this attractive set of buildings near the Old Town proper. It seems that it closes around 4pm. Still quite nice to walk past, but I would have liked to also see the interior.
