Cost for non Thai is 100 THB to visit.
No problems with parking.

Lots of pieces one display the pre-historic finds in the area.
Worth the visit to understand the finds in the area.

No AC but it is not too bad.

A provincial museum that has a few things but rather scattered. Fee for foreigners is 5 times that for Thais. For this reason only it should be avoided.

I had a few hours to fill 1n and Trip Advisor listed this museum with positive reviews. So glad I went. Firstly it's in a delightful building, the old city hall. There is a bilingual intro video and you walk around from room to room in chronological order from stone age to the C20. Ubon and Isaan have had a colourful past with the Khymers figuring prominently.
Apparently the museum has the only sitting Shiva statue. The 9 planets sculpture from the C11 Thai Khymer period was fascinating.as was the lion guardian from the same period.
Well worth a 1.5 to 2 hour visit.

I had limited expectations upon visiting the museum having lived in Thailand for 24 years I am aware of the lack of support for the antiquities. However I was pleasantly surprised by this well presented and informative museum. Small and ‘quaint’ it has the feeling of a provincial museum but offers sufficient displays to make a visit a must. It’s like stepping back in time. Well done to all, particularly the staff who are obviously proud of their history and offer a welcoming smile to all!

Very peaceful museum. We were almost alone when we visited. It is big enough to display a lot of pieces. I particularly loved the Hindu ones, some carvings were so intricate and so well preserved; superb!!!
Do not miss it if you are a history lover and if you are visiting the Khmer temples nearby and in Surin, because most sculptures are in museums and not on the temples outside anymore.
They charged foreigner price even if we had our work permits, but we got tired of explaining them we were paying our tax in Thailand and we had forgotten the 91 form copy... At least they use the money to maintain the museum in a good shape.

An excellent chronological & geological history of this provincial area, complete with museum-quality prehistoric exhibits as well as interesting historic exhibits, like early woven fish traps, ancient pottery and clay and metal tools & artifacts. Many exhibits had Thai/English spoken explanations of the eras exhibited in that room. Staff were mostly non-English speaking, but very welcoming and efficient at keeping you pointed in the right direction. My son & I spent almost an hour enjoying these interesting histories and exhibits. Well labeled in both Thai & English.

This museum is good to learn about Ubon and Thailand, but very basic. Thai people, for whatever reason are not really into museum's and I think that this museum is an example of this. I've been to it a couple of times now and its left me with more questions than answered, yet it does help to learn about Ubon and the Isan area of Thailand. The museum is never crowded, so you don't have to worry about others. As in other places in Thailand, there is no A/C, so make sure to dress appropriately. I would recommend going here if you are in Muang Ubon.

The museum is quite small, I walked passed it twice! A very kind local person showed me the way. It's under renovation at the moment, so a few rooms are off limits. To compensate, admission is free - for the next couple of weeks, I think. It's a charming building with interesting exhibits. A member of staff very kindly found an information leaflet in English for me, and happily answered my questions. A lovely way to spend an hour or two

I was lucky enough to visit the museum whilst the Candle Festival was on. There where wax sculptures being made on the museum grounds.
If you are in Ubon the National Museum is worth a look. Explains a lot of the regions history.
The exhibitions are there in the open so you don't feel like it is restrictive. There are polite signs that say, "please don't touch". The exhibits.
All in all a nice way to spend an hour in Ubon Ratchathani.
