This fascinating museum displays a remarkable collection of tools, textiles and photographs from Phitsanulok Province. It’s spread throughout five traditional-style Thai buildings with well-groomed gardens, and the displays are all accompanied by informative and legible English descriptions. Those interested in cooking will find much of interest in the display of a traditional Thai kitchen and the various traps used to catch game. Male visitors will feel twinges of empathetic pain upon seeing the display that describes traditional bull castration – a process that apparently involves no sharp tools.

There’s a basic aquarium featuring fish native to Phitsanulok in the same compound.
