Welcome to Mae Sariang

This is the first building you see coming in from Chiang Mai on Hwy 108. A photographers marvel in seeing this style of building for the first time. My photo was from last years visit, however this year I noticed the building looked different. The rooftop spire seemed to be missing just above the apex and the museum not operating, I later found out it has been damaged by fire.
Hopefully the locals can rebuild this iconic building.

Information about hilltribes in last century
Jan 2015 • Solo
Is is a small but very informative place with shows you on a reduced scale their way of living, working, playing and dancing of different hilltribes living on the Birmese borderline and around Salaween River. The place itself looks less maintained, but go inside and be amazed of it.

Burmese style landmark with interesting exhibits
Sep 2014 • Friends
This museum is noted for its ornate Burmese roof and is a Mae Sariang landmark. The museum entrance faces the main highway intersection while behind it is an organic market and many local shops. The building seems in need of upkeep; yet, it contains some interesting information about the indigenous hilltribe peoples and immigrants that have lived there for hundreds of years.

The exhibits consist of some everyday items, costumes, vintage black and white photos, and lifesize dioramas of the Lawa, Karen and other hilltribes as well as the Pakistani, Burmese and Chinese that peacefully have been co-existing in this area. There are no English explanations of the exhibits, but you can get an idea because of the way they are presented. Fortunately, we had a private guide who provided some general information in English as we moved from one room to another.
