It is a set of museum, composed by 3 small sections (you have to buy tickets to all, but the price is very accessible). The museums have nice displays, in multilanguages, so, you will have a nice idea about Thai and Chiang Mai history and local costumes. You will spend almost 30 minutes to see all the displays, and don't forget to go to the small art crafts store located in the second store. The price of every item is very nice, but the products are really made by the local natives, the prices is the same as the products you will find in the night market, but much better quality. Good place to find small gifts from Chiang Mai.

Museum is free to all that visit, it is not a lot to see and you can spend 90 minutes or so looking at the past history of ChangMai itself. Interesting artifacts and all signs are posted in Thai and English. Not really geared toward kids that will want more interactive exhibits but and great place to go for a rainy day.

We went there because we wanted to know more about the history of Lanna Kingdom. It was very informative. Being right in the middle of the old city, it was very easy to get to.
