Something for when you have seen most of the rest of Chiang Mai. Only 4 stars because they ask for double what the other (government) museums charge. Though perhaps there are good reasons, scholars generally being poor.

Small family run place that is not quite what i expected.. interesting collection, but very cluttered and often without English labels. Expensive for what it offers. Also the gate is oddly always closed and when i rang the bell according to instruction on the gate,...More

From the signs on the gate listing information (it may be hot inside, no live specimens) telling you to read the content and only ring the bell if you are interested, this place has a weird feel. Entry is 200 Baht which is pretty steep,...More

Revisited the tour book. It is Baht 200 for adults and Baht 100 for kids. Don't think they will take credit cards.
