This is an amazing museum about Chiang Mai's history and culture. It opened in 1999. Their web sit is a bit hi-tech quirky.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was great and what a fantastic way to understand the culture and history of where you are visiting. It gives you a great insight into the people and regions history and probably worth visiting here before you start going on tours to give you some background. Highly recommended!

This is a wonderfully put together museum about the city, covering prehistory to today. Much of the history is told in video form. There's not actually that many exhibits. The focus is on the quality. Which I found refreshing as it made all the information easy to digest.

This museum showcased the history and culture of the city of Chiang Mai. We got to learn about the history of who ruled the city and how it came to be what it is today, in addition to viewing different cultural artifacts and exhibits. Overall, very interesting experience for anyone who's curious about the history and culture of northern Thailand.

Loved our visit here. We were planning to go somewhere else and stumbled upon this museum about Chiang Mai’s history and culture by accident. Great set up, really interesting exhibits and a wonderful tea room and museum shop to boot. Enjoyed ourselves thoroughly, and I was able to purchase some beautiful handwoven Karen and Hmong blankets and hangers. The caretaker/owner of the store visits the hill tribes regularly and can tell you exactly where everything in the store came from.

Fantastic museum!! Full of history, exhibits, and very well laid out.

We happened to arrive as the curator was at the entrance. She offered to show us around. She is incredible!! Answered all of our questions, provided personal stories, and spoke great English!

There is a ton of info in multiple languages on the exhibit display boards. Well worth reading as much as you can. If you take your time, it will likely take three hours. There are multiple rooms to go in and out of, most are well air conditioned. A couple of short movies to see provide a nicely timed place to sit.

A very modern and interesting museum with informative exhibits. Much better learning experience than the Chiang Mai National Museum, which while housing beautiful artifacts was not that informative

I really enjoyed this. Well laid out. Very interesting without information overload. Highly recommend coming here if you want to learn more about the city. Information boards are in English too. Right behind the Three Kings Monument. Check online as they close Monday I believe. Staff are pleasant and friendly. Cheap entrance fee. I think there is a combination ticket (may be wrong) that covers all three museums which are close together. Only two are open at present. December, 2021. You need an hour to an hour and a half at the most.
