Visiting the Identity of Nan Museum in Nan town

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).

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
