Attraction Details :
Located on Prapoklao Road, Chiang Mai City Arts and Cultural Center stands on the location of the former royal hall. Built in 1924 with elegant architectural design, the building was first used as the central administrative offices of Monthon Phayap, later as the Provincial Hall of Chiang Mai until the municipality renovated it for the cultural center in 1997. The restoration of the center has earned the municipality the award from the Royal Society of Siamese Architects in 1999. The center is created to promote the understanding of Chiang Mai’s roots, a sense of pride in local identity, and to preserve the beauty of local culture. The center has been divided into 2 sections, front side and rare section. The front side is all for permanent exhibit showing the development of the region from the pre-history to its rise and decline as an independent capital until the present time through variety of media and presentation. And the rare side is the enclosed open-air courtyard reserved for cultural activities, temporary exhibition, a souvenir shop, a lecture theatre, an exhibition hall for Lanna arts and an archive.
