Sgt. Maj. Thawee Folk Museum

A fascinating museum

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4.5 stars



This fascinating museum is a must-see. Set in several buildings, it has a huge range of displays covering everything from Thai traditional culture, to a massive collection of animal and fish traps, thorough to photos of the great Phitsanulok fire and skin-crawling photos detailing the castration of a buffalo. The museum is walking distance from the youth hostel, but a good 15-minute walk from the centre of Phitsanulok. There is a small souvenir shop and cafe on the site.
