I found this museum quite interesting. The museum itself is air conditioned and easy to walk around. We had a good afternoon walking around and taking photos. 4 Stars.

Wife and i visited the museum - great for those interested in dinosaur relics. Not just dino bones and full size models, but diaramas of life in prehostoric times. i loved it, but many may not.

Payed doubled price as tourist and didn't see anything interesting, no real fossils or new insights about dinosaurs. P.S. Also no need to do the walk through the park, there is nothing to see.

This place is very educational. There have been so many dinosaur finds here. This area was mainly vegetarian types whereas the other side of Khonkaen towards Kalasin are meat eaters. If you look on Google Maps at this area you can see the mountain formation...More
