Hariphunchai National Museum

Our rating:

Set in a spacious and cool modern building just behind Wat Phra That Haripunchai is the town’s national museum.

Reflecting more Lamphun’s historical significance than the town’s current size and influence, it’s rather good as far as provincial museums go.

The display is split into three sections, with a ground floor room housing stone (mostly Mon) inscriptions, a first floor section with Buddhas and statues from local wats and a separate building concentrating more on Mon and Lanna cultural artifacts. Many though not all the items have bilingual labels.

This is nothing earth shattering but worth a look if you are in town with 30 or 40 minutes to spare.

There is a 100 baht entrance fee for foreignera and though no flash photography is allowed you can take your camera.
