Chiang Mai Historical Centre

Chiang Mai Attractions

The Chiang Mai Historical Centre is a museum in the city which presents the history of the city in a new and exciting way. While it is similar to the National Museum in Chiang Mai, the Historical Centre is conveniently located in the city centre and easy to find right in the centre of Chaing Mai Old City, opposite the Three Kings Monument. The building has been designed in Lanna style and is surrounded by a shaded garden area.

The Historical centre is a good place for children with lots of interactive displays and wax models displaying traditional life in the Kingdom. There are different language options for those who cannot speak English or Thai, and the explanations are short and informative. In the basement there is a display of ancient temple ruins, which were actually found during the building process and incorporated into the centre. The Chiang Mai Historical Centre costs 90 Baht for adults and 40 Baht for children, although there is a week long pass for three different museums available for 180 Baht for adults and 80 for children which can be bought at the centre.
