Nan National Museum

An excellent museum

What we say: 4 stars

This excellent two-storey museum has a fascinating collection of various artifacts that have been dug up, donated or purchased from all over Nan province.

The star attraction is a black elephant tusk, which measures 94 cm in length and weighs 18 kg.

There is also the mandatory Buddha collection, along with a selection of interesting knick-knacks and a reasonable display documenting the cultures of the hilltribes living in Nan province.

Housed in the house of a long-dead Nan lord, the displays are nearly all labelled in both English and Thai. The entrance fee for foreigners is 100 baht -- considerably more than what Thais are charged.
