I wanted to let everyone know about a new and important textile collection which has just opened in Chiang Mai, Thailand: the Sbun-Nga Textile Museum, located in the Old Chiang Mai Cultural Center at 185/3 Wualai Rd., Phone/Fax 053/215-026. I have personally viewed the collection, which is well-displayed in half a dozen or so large rooms and consists of primarily the clothing of the peoples of the north of Thailand, Laos, and Burma, plus court costumes of these areas. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed. Admission is 100Baht and the hours are 1-5pm. Sorry, no email address or website. My understanding is that the owners are dealers who have put this collection together over a 20 year period, and that the display will be changed every six months.

The exhibit is extremely well done and fascinating. The staff are lovely and very professional. Thank you Susan for mentioning this museum.

Unfortunately, the last time I was there the lovely staff informed me that not very many people visit the museum and I was actually the first person to visit that 2 pm. Hopefully as time goes by the word will get out and more people will visit. It's one of the highlights of Chiang Mai.

I agree that the Sbun Nga Textile Museum is excellent! See information on the museum at ... ctions.htm which I compiled after an excellent few days in Chiang Mai in 2003 when Susan Stem showed me around several textile exhibits.

Also see

I understand that the exhibit is planned to change every 6 months.
