Covering a hilltop at the end of a dirt road, the museum includes several buildings that are notable for their architectural value. Before coming inside you’ll see a few large sculptures; check out the golden Ganesha peering down from the hill. Some buildings are used for private gatherings but the largest boasts three large exhibition halls that are free to check out.

During our visit, one room featured a bunch of paintings by acclaimed artist Chalermchai Kasitpipat, creator of Chiang Rai’s famous Wat Rong Khun. While we appreciate his style that pulls people into fantasty realms often based on Hindu/Buddhist mythology, we were more taken by socially edgy pieces from artists like Lampu Kansanoh and Anupong Chantorn, some of which were available for purchase.

Visitors who aren’t up for buying a pricey work of art can contribute by having a coffee in a sleek upper-floor cafe or picking out something from the gift shop.

How to get there
The Khao Yai Art Museum is located down a side road that shoots east off Thanarat around eight kilometres north of the park’s northern gate -- look for a blue sign on Thanarat. After taking this turn it’s another few kilometres to the dirt road leading up to the museum, which is also marked by a blue sign.
