Wat Gate Museum

The temple museum, Wat Gate Museum features an eclectic collection of artifacts discovered from the attics and storerooms of the temple. One of the most interesting art objects is an old Siamese "White Elephant" flag and a collection of old phonographs going back more than 100 years to the western trading era in Chiang Mai.

There are pictures of scenes from daily life in Chiang Mai including old riverboats, markets and even examples of criminal prosecution. It is possible to see what many of the town temples looked like after the Burmese occupation, when they were mostly abandoned, and before the modern influx of tourists resulted in their restoration.

There are also displays of records and record players.

The museum opens daily from 8.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
