Surin National Museum

Worth a look

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3 stars

The provincial museum contains well laid out exhibitions on the local ethnic groups, Suay, Khmer and Lao, on rice farming and on the Angkor period in Surin as well as a general outline of Surin history and culture.

A handful of exhibits display cloths, art and tools from all of the above, and there are even a few English descriptions.

The museum is worth a peek if heading towards the Khmer ruins as you'll acquire some knowledge which may help put the ruins into the historical-cultural context of the area.

  • Definitely Worth a Visit

    An excellent museum with a little bit of everything - culture, natural history, geography, geology, rice cultivation, Khmer history, etc.
    It'll give you a good overview of this part of Thailand.
    It was open Wednesday to Sunday when I visited.
    One thing. DO NOT try to walk there. It's far out-of-town. You need to rent a moto or get a moto driver to take you.
