: 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.
