Visiting the Wat Simonkul Museum in Tha Wang Pha

Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand

During a day trip in Nan province (North Thailand) we did visit a kind of museum at a temple. And not only old things but also things from "only" 10 or 15 years ago. The idea is that when people die they can give things to the temple to display in the museum. So the new generation can see you they did get where they are now. Old telephones, old radios, old cameras. But also old Buddhist books, photos and ancient potteries. The museum is housed in a beautiful teak-wooden Northern style house on stilts. So take off your shoes. For more information about the beautiful Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand.
