There is no guarantee if you will be able to visit the museum. Also, there are no tuk tuks or taxis there waiting for you. Try to figure out a way to go though.

the entrance is past the police station on chotana road, a little further west than the map indicates. Entrance today was an enforced 40 baht donation. A large collection of artifacts and movies. Raises more questions then it answers, but that's ok.

This museum is nice to see if you are nearby, but not really worth a ride there. The exhibits were interesting, and there are explainations in english, but nothing out of the ordinary. However the location is beautiful- right in the middle of a lake....More

Hi Michael, I'm sorry but I don't remember how much it cost to get in to the museum. I'm sure it must have been reasonable, because if it had been expensive then I probably would have been more likely to remember it, sorry... More
