Nan Noble House

Reviewed By KhunawutM

This place is an old northen-style house tuned museum. The former master of the house was an old thai royal called (Chao Fong Kham). The entry fee was only 20 baht per person. The ground floor: On the ground floor under the house, which was bulit on stilit, they demonstrate the production of traditional Lanna textile. They also sing a local song for you. In the house: You can see old rooms such as living room, guests room, and kitchen. Lots of beautiful silver wares were on diaplay. The rooms show where the old master would sleep, eat, or welcome his guest. There were many facinating piece of Lanna culture for you to see, so definitely bring a camera. There was not much else going on other than this but the entry fee was dirt cheap so I would rate it a five stars. Ps. The garden has a unique bell shaped flowers. I wonder what it's called!

Nan National Museum

Reviewed By AnaPedro-AnaPedro - Bangkok, Thailand

We started one day and had to finish the visit on the day after, yes! Not because it has lots of rooms, no, but because we started later at 3pm and the Museum closes at 4pm! And as we are Museum's addicted persons we like to see and learn every details of the History. Located in a large wide area, surrounded by beautiful and well maintained gardens, this Museum was before the Home of the Lords of Nan and by the 30's when the last Lord passed away in 1931, his family has donated the House and the all property to the Country. So, since then the Fine Arts Department decided together with the Princess to dedicate this beautiful place to Nan History and Culture. Very well organised, it starts with the History of the Kings genealogy on the ground floor and it goes to the second floor with the transformation of the House into a Museum as it is nowadays. The strong influence of the Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn has been of great importance as one of her greatest goals is to ensure that Thai Culture is preserved and disclosed to all thais and visitors. This museum owns a great collection of Lanna Art, Nan Art, Sukhothai Art, Siam Art and the mixing of these with other styles from Burma and Lao that influenced the local Art and made it so rich and prosperous even today! Undoubtedly a MUST VISIT when visiting Nan city or other places around Nan Province. Art works, the amazing Story and influence of the Unique Horn (they believe to be from a 60 year old elephant in the 14th century AD) that is a symbol for Nan People and Nan Culture, the History of the handmade Buddha Statues from centuries ago until today. Let me tell you how richness I felt after this very visit to this simple but remarkable Museum :-) I strongly recommend a Visit (start in the morning, if possible) and take some photos of the surrounding areas, it has such beautiful places also to relax :-)
