History of Chumphon!
Oct 2017 • Couples
If you have 2-3 days in Chumphon, you can consider for traveling here.
The museum is about history of Chumphon. I think need 1-1.30 hours walk through the museum.

A surprise
Jul 2016 • Family
I was not expecting anything great at this museum but I was surprised by what they had on display. There are displays of tools dating back 4,000 years through to the importance of the sea trade 1st century B.C. There are excellent displays from the 13th century of bowls and jugs and jewellery and two huge Bronze Kettle Drums with beautiful artwork engraved on them. Many people pass through Chumphon on their way to Koh Tao and Koh Sumi with out taking the time to look around Chumphon, it is worth it.

Ok for alittle history
Jun 2016 • Couples
Not really much to do in Chumphon so we opted to go to the museum. The museum was ok it only taken about 40 mins to look around but was good for something to do and good if you want to learn the history of Chumphon. To be honest I only went to look at the old buddha artifacts. But I didnt get bored looking at everything else. I am english so they charged me 100 baht to enter and my Thai partner 20 baht. Good if you wish to spend a hour doing something.

Rainy Day and Kid Friendly Event
Aug 2015 • Friends
Well arranged museum on two floors. Several dioramas illustrate the pre-historic and early human development of the area. There is also a good explanation of what Chumphon means politically and geographically to Thailand.
The guides are well informed and eager to assist you in all aspects of the exhibits. Very kid friendly

Clean & Interesting
Feb 2016 • Couples
The building was well kept and clean. A couple movies played, one on the devastating storm Gay and one on WW2. Descriptions of museum artifacts in both Thai and English. Small, but interesting. We paid 100 baht for a foreigner ticket.

Chumphon National museum
Oct 2014 • Friends
Arrived at about 14.00 hrs the lady on the door looked worried and rang someone who came and put the lights on.Don't think many people visit.It was interesting with quite a few areas to visit. The young man who stayed with us could not speak English but had a lovely smile. I would like to see a brochure in different languages but I'm sure it's the cost that prevents this. It was a nice 1hr or so learning a little history.

SOMEWHERE TO VISIT ON A RAINY DAY
Oct 2014 • Couples
Situated about a kilometre from Chumphon railway station on the road to the airport and Thung Wualean Beach, the National Museum provides an interesting insight into the history of Chumphon province and is a good place to visit on a rainy day. It is a little difficult to find as it is behind the main regional administrative offices, which are on the far side of the railway crossing. This is easy to see as it dominates the road. Drive past the offices and turn left at the traffic lights and the entrance is on the slip road up to the flyover.

There is a 100 baht entrance fee for foreigners although on our visit they did not have any tickets so we put the money in the donation box.They don't seem to have many visitors because someone rushed ahead of us turning on lights and starting AV presentations but the staff were welcoming and friendly. There are some interesting archeological exhibits from a site in Nachaang subdistrict and information on many local places that are also worth a visit. We enjoyed our visit and it was useful enabling us to create a list of other places to see.
