Visiting the Identity of Nan Museum in Nan

The "Identity of Nan Museum" in Nan - Thailand
I had passed this museum already many times and always thought "I should have a look next time". But next time always became next time. Until yesterday, when I did finally stopped and had a look. It is a modern & professional museum about the history of Nan province. It starts with the pre-historical time-line of the area of what we now call Nan province. Slowly the time-line goes to the settlement of Nan town.

An interesting part is where the many ethnic minorities are shown with the different traditional cloths. You can even make a photo of yourself dressed in any of the traditional cloths.

There is one (but major) problem for people who can not read Thai .... no signs or explanation in English (or any other language). The museum is open every day from 9:00 - 16:00 and entrance fee is 50 Thai Baht per person. For what we did get an personal Thai speaking guide. As the museum is located just outside of Nan town you might need your own transport (a bit too far for walking). For more information about the beautiful Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan, North Thailand.
