Chiang Mai National Museum Reviews
バンコクほど大きくはないが、チェンセーンほど小さくもないほどほどの大きさ。 幹線沿いだが、交通量が多いので要注意。 午前中訪問をおすすめ。 近隣に有名なお寺がいくつかあるので、１セットでいくのが効率的。 more »It's not as big as Bangkok, but not as big as Chiang Saen. It is along the main line, but be careful because there is a lot of traffic. It is recommended to visit in the morning. There are several famous temples nearby, so it's efficient to go in one set.

Pleasantly surprised! Spacious, well arranged, ventilated, well lit, great exhibits providing information in Thai and (decent) English regarding the history of the Northern (Lanna) Region, the arrival and spread of Buddhism into the different parts of Thailand, and more. Personally, as it was my first visit, I was very impressed by some of the displays, and the English translations - while containing some errors, was reasonably well done. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there, depending on how you enjoy your museum visits, this one could range any where between 1-3 or even 4 hours. As I was visiting with elders, I was also very impressed at the availability of an elevator (there are 2 levels), and I noticed ramps with handrails connecting some of the display areas that were set apart from the main areas. Highly recommended for people who are interested on learning about the North. 😊👍
This official museum provides visitors with a cultural understanding. Most of the pieces are about Lanna artifacts and northern Thai history. It is located outside the old town. For the tourist like me, it’s not very convenient to arrange the trip. But I enjoyed the sophisticated Buddhist statues, their faces and the shapes are perfect. I think It is worthy to visit, although my daughter felt boring.
