No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

Highlights include a roughly 3,000-year-old human skeleton and tools unearthed at the Ban Chiang archaeological site in Udon Thani; delicately carved stone boundary markers crafted around 1,000 years ago during the Dvaravati period and uncovered in Kalasin province; and stone lintels crafted during the Khmer period a bit later.

While Khon Kaen is given special attention in some respects, the exhibits with English info tend to focus more broadly on the entire Isaan region and beyond. The whole shebang will provide a reasonable primer on the history of the region from the Stone Age to the 20th century.

The National Museum is located among administrative buildings just east of the northern end of Klang Mueang Rd.
