Not for everyone, remote place and not sure the travelling is justified. While it is an intersting museum the enterance fee of 150 baht proved too much for what was on offer. I am a history person but found this display a little boring, however...More

This is not far from udon. If you are interested in Prehistorical History this place is for you. I dont think kids would like to go hear. Just remember it is not open on mondays.

Come here after visited red lotus sea at dawn. Its 50+km from Udon Thani, easily reached by any transportation. If you want to visited Ban Chiang area or buy some pottery, dont come here too early, Museum open at 0830, buy the merchants not.
