The upper floor was under renovation but the lower floor gave an interesting history of the area although in Thai language. Our guide did translate for us.. Also a family tree of Thailand rulers.

Very short visit as most rooms were closed and so the only exhibition was a few photographs of the Thai Royal family and family tree.

Just around half of hour I had visited this place, but I was very impressed. You must see the black ivory, the legend of Nan city, inside this museum.

The door was open but there was virtually nothing inside EXCPT black ivory, which was kinda cool. All signs in Thai. A few interesting historical photos. Second level closed.

The museum has two floors, with the ground floor being devoted to the province’s ethnic groups, and the first floor displaying exhibits on Nan history and architecture. The ethnic groups represented are the northern Thais

Nan itself is an unusual village. The people are friendly and helpful, but most do not speak English. Try to visit the mountain villages. The crafts are beautiful!

I visited there on August 2016 but it was under renovation inside so I did not get in. But I can walk around to my favorite spot in front of the area, it is the Frangipani tree camber way.

We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and spent about 25 minutes wandering and taking photos. There is a mini temple in the front that was built as the 12th temple in Nan for the king who wanted to visit 12 temples during his visit. And a...More

When we went, the museum was under renovation so only half was open. On a positive, it was free. The renovation will be finished by the end of 2016, and it is certainly something I would like to revisit.
