Udon Thani Museum (Phiphitthaphan Muang Udon Thani) is situated in an old colonial-style building near Nong Prajak public park. The building was built in 1920s by the governor of Udon Thani province with helps from Udon Thani merchants and residents to make it the first all-girl school in the province named "Naree Uppatham School". 5 years later, the King Rama VI had given a new name to the school as "Rachinuthit". After the school had moved to larger location nearby, this building had been occupied by government agencies and social agencies throughout the time until 2004 when the municipality decided to turn it to museum.
Udon Thani Museum contains history of Udon Thani settlement, history of Udon Thani city's founder "Prince Prajak Silpakhom", local archeology and natural history, history of the city development, the local cultures and livings, and the buddism livings in the city especially "Luangta Maha Bua" who is the most respected monk for Udon Thani people. The museum is currently run by Udon Thani municipal office.
