This museum/memorial hall is worth a visit. It provides a good history of Mae Salong and an explanation of the Chinese history of this town. It is a stop worth an hour of your time.

Really enjoyed visiting this museum, and mae salong generally, as it was great to learn and almost forgotten and often untold piece of history. Totally worth paying 20 baht especially if you can read thai or chinese. Although there was some English background please note that it is still limited.

For those interested in the history of this fascinating region, the hall and attached museum are a wonderful way to learn more about the Chinese soldiers who settled in this region in the 1960s. Captions are (mostly) in Chinese and Thai with some English translations.

This is a great historical museum to learn about the stuggle of Kuomintang who escaped from China after the civil war. The hardship they went through all those years.
