Chiang Mai and Environs Sights

Chiang Mai City Art & Cultural Center

Updated 05/31/2013

Fodor's Review

The handsome city museum is housed in a colonnaded palace that was the official administrative headquarters of the last local ruler, Chao (Prince) Inthawichayanon. Around its quiet central courtyard are 15 rooms with exhibits documenting the history of Chiang Mai. In another small, shady courtyard is a delightful café. The palace was built in 1924 in the exact center of the city, site of the ancient city pillar that now stands in the compound of nearby Wat Chedi Luang.

In front of the museum sit statues of the three kings who founded Chiang Mai.
