Over a city walk, just to get an idea of the tribes it okay. It doesn’t have much things on display. The entrance is just 50TBH! It has a small craft shop as well.

Small museum with an introductory slide show that was worth viewing. Provided a start to understanding a bit about the many tribes within the country.

Surprised ourselves with a 90minute stop here. Interesting and educational. It's upstairs near the gardens, easy walk from the clocktower. Definitely needs updating however to bring it up to modern day times-thought this was a bit lazy of the operators. Go see if you are...More

Not the most fancy place, but well worth the visit. Very educational, with highlights about the influence of the opium trade and its economic impact on tribal communities. Beautiful basket weaving and a modest selection of costumes. Handicrafts are lovely. Extended tours can also be...More

We spent about an hr there. 30mins is spent watching an over elaborate video on the different hill tribes in Thailand. The museum is obviously very small so the video is supposed to make up for the entrance fee of 50baht. However, it's still too...More

A small but interesting museum that is worth a visit. There are 3 or 4 rooms with displays of tribal clothing, tools and photos. When you first enter you are shown a video about the various different hill tribes in Thailand.

November to February is the best season. It's cooler in the north anyway. But the mountain breezes make this season very comfortable with very few mosquitoes.
