Chiang Mai National Museum

Museum in Chiang Mai

Operated by the Fine Arts Department, this museum is the primary caretaker of Lanna artefacts and northern Thai history. But when we stopped by all the galleries were closed for refurbishment, and had been for a few years. When the museum reopens, expect the old admission fee of 100B to be reinstated.

Bags and cameras must be left in the free lockers by the ticket desk. To make a visit more worthwhile, combine your trip with a visit to Wat Jet Yot and the Chinese cemetery.
