The exhibits are a bit dated, having been put in place nearly 30 years ago and not updated, but the history is still there and interesting from 5,000 years ago. The hotel arranged a day trip for us and it was great!

Very well laid out and informative. Less than an hour from Udon. Don't forget to visit the temple just down the road and see the original excavation site..and the huge Sacred Fig tree. Awesome place...and I am lucky to live 5 minutes away!! Just opposite the entrance try the traditional Thai desert.

Out of the way place, off the beaten track, but a very signifcant historical find in the archaeological world. Great exhibits in a well maintained facility about an hour from Udon Thani. Great roads to get here - the signs could be a little better placed to guide you right to the spot, but once arrived it is a nice... More

Located around 60 kms east of Udon is Ban Chiang a facility displaying skeletons in the excavated grounds and artifacts collected during excavations. It dates back thousands of years and the sinage in the building is excellent providing a desltailed historical narrative. It's a good half day trip and if you don't have personal transport, a mini bus ticket can... More

Ban Chiang is hard to get to, but a must for all history lovers. It is well of the beaten track, so you won't get many western tourists here, but you will learn loads about Thai and human history by taking your time around the museum and surrounding sites. It is set in quiet countryside, where many people still farm... More

Ban Chiang is great for a day visit.Museum and digging site were first class. Once finished with the history part there are still the shops and the local food to try. Very clean village and friendly locals. Been there 4 times and always enjoy the trip.

This is the second time I've visited the World Heritage listed Ban Chiang archaeological site. The museum has been developed beautifully to really showcase the interesting finds which tell some of the tales of this fascinating prehistoric culture. If in this part of Isaan I highly recommend the journey out from Udon Thani. The one drawback is the two tiered... More
