Attraction Details :

This museum is also a research center, containing the most complete and largest collection of dinosaur fossils in Southeast Asia. Named after Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, its interiors are filled with mysterious walkways guiding visitors to travel back in time to the Paleozoic Era, approximately 200 million years ago. Walking through the tunnels, visitors reach various exhibitions on Geology, the beginnings of the Earth and how it was formed, as well as the evolution of living creatures such as dinosaurs and humans. 

Highlights include life-sized skeletons of the many important dinosaur species discovered in this area, such as Phuwiangosaurus sirindhornae, Siamosaurus suteethorni and Siamotyrannus isanensis. In addition, also displayed in the museum is the actual archaeological dig site where fossils of six dinosaurs were unearthed.

Sirindhorn Museum and Phu Kum Khao Dinosaur Excavation Site are situated in the foothills of Phu Kum Khao Mountain in Sahatsakhan District, approximately 28 kilometers from Kalasin Town. To get there, take Highway 227 (Kalasin - Sahatsakhan) for 28 kilometers. Two kilometers before Sahatsakhan, you will come to an intersection. Turn right and continue for another 1 kilometer.
