House of Opium

Museum in Sop Ruak

This small but informative museum features historical displays pertaining to opium culture. Exhibits include the various implements used in the planting, harvesting, use and trade of the Papaver somniferum resin, including pipes, weights and scales. The museum is at the southeastern end of Sop Ruak, roughly across from the huge Buddha statue at Phra Chiang Saen Si Phaendin.
