Hilltribe Research Institute Museum in Chiang Mai


Hilltribe Research Institute Museum
Chiang Mai

The Hilltribe Research Institute was founded to increase awareness of the northern hilltribes that inhabit the mountains of Chiang Mai and other provinces. The museum offers a range of exhibits covering all cultural aspects of nine Hilltribes: the Akha, Lahu, Lisu, Yao, Hmong, Karen, Lua, Khamu, and H'tin. It also provides information on the Mlabri - not a hilltribe but an ethnic minority whose current population is around the 180 people mark. A range of photographs show aspects of the tribe members' daily lives and exhibits include hilltribe agricultural implements, traditional religious artifacts, traditional clothing, and musical instruments.

Details: At present the museum is open on weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm, and a slide and video show is available from 10 am to 2 pm daily. Special group tours on weekends are possible with advance notice.

How to get there: The museum is on Chotana Road and a Tuk-Tuk fare from the city centre will cost around 30 Baht.

Hilltribe Institute Museum, Chotana Road, Ampher Muang, Chiangmai, 50000.
