An excellent chronological & geological history of this provincial area, complete with museum-quality prehistoric exhibits as well as interesting historic exhibits, like early woven fish traps, ancient pottery and clay and metal tools & artifacts.

Very nice small museum situated in the downtown area. We enjoyed what exhibits they have, altho it is limited. Well worth a walk thru.

If your in the city and interested in History then it's worth a look. Nearly all the exhibits and their description were translated into Thai. There are lots of artifacts from Khmer temple ruins and a room about Thai textiles and some interesting old Issan...More

The museum is in the old building. We liked sculptures and elephant riding gear. The museum is good for people who want to hide for one hour in the shadow during the day.
