This is an amazing museum about Chiang Mai's history and culture. It opened in 1999. Their web sit is a bit hi-tech quirky.

Outside seating is a little warm in April. Food ok. Dancing is nice but slow. Not a high action performance. Seems a little long. Would not recommend.

A lovely place to spend a couple of hours. The building itself is very relaxing (they have a coffee and gift shop overlooking the courtyard). It's informative without being too heavy. Definitely worthwhile.

Would highly recommend visiting this museum! It’s very modern, with hi-tech displays & beautifully presented information. The gift shop & cafe are also lovely. Was surprised by how empty it is given the high standard! The best museum we’ve been to in Thailand by far!
