This little museum was well worth a visit and had information that can be useful. The video was good.
We stopped by the Hill Tribe Museum to book an activity with PDA tours. We chose to do a 1 day tour which involved so much: Long tail boat ride, elephant jungle trek, hike, waterfall visit (swimming optional), and a visit to a couple hill tribes. The tour was so amazing and the highlight with out a doubt was the... More
We had a few hours to spare before catching the Green Bus back to Chiang Mai and based on some of the reviews we decided to walk over to the museum ( very close to Le Patta hotel, where we were staying). It is a small, simple museum, but very worthwhile visiting, especially if you would like to learn some... More
This museum is very interesting and you can easily spend a few hours looking around. There is a very fascinating story to read and photos to go with it about the history of opium. The story about bamboo is also quite exciting. There is some basic information about the largest ethnic groups in Thailand. The costume display is great if... More
I do recommend seeing this museum. I do like their efforts to help hill tribes maintain some of their culture. They can also organize daytrips to the villages as well as trips with 3 overnight stays. We did not have the time available, but no doubt it would be a great experience.
This is a really interesting small museum, it is fascinating to learn about the hill tribes and explains the negative impact of tourism on the hill tribe way of life.
This museum was really interesting, but not that exciting visually. It was really cheap to get in, and I did learn a lot. Probably good food for thought for people planning to visit a hill tribe while they are in northern Thailand. I have to say I learned more about opium than hill tribes though!
Really enjoyed this museum - it is very small and doesn't take long to walk around, but it is very interesting. There is plenty to read to learn about different tribes, but not too much that its dry. Also appreciated the honesty, e.g. the long neck Karen villages often promoted by tour operators are just for show for tourists and... More
We learnt so much - it is cheap, and you can get a free drink at the restaurant downstairs (another story). Video/slideshows provide great information about the different tribes. Highly recommended.
Wow, I would definitely recommend everyone passing through to visit here. It is not a fancy museum with interactive exhibits but well worth it for all the information. I went with my five year old daughter and there was just enough interesting things to see to keep her busy and small enough that she could go through at her rapid... More
