Sangkhlaburi Cultural Center

Cultural Centre in Sangkhlaburi

This little cultural centre mostly works to promote appreciation of Karen, Mon and Thai culture to local children, but visitors are welcomed inside to admire the privately owned collection of drums, rá·nâht èhk (bamboo-keyed xylophones), baskets and old-style farmers' hats.

To find it, walk to the east side of town and head south past the school; it's opposite Toy's restaurant.

There's no English spoken or displayed on the walls, but the friendly owner sometimes mimes objects' uses (and even models the hats).
