Monfai is a living museum. It was established in 1982 by Rampad Kothkaew,
to conserve and preserve the vanishing remnants of traditional Lanna arts and crafts, architecture and lifestyle.

The centre is both a living museum and venue for traditional Lanna weddings, traditional food markets, dance and music concerts and workshops.
Considering Monfai’s proximity to downtown Chiang Mai, it is incredibly tranquil with its leafy grounds and quiet location. The museum is full of handmade Lanna artifacts, and the passionate museum staff are more than happy to share their knowledge.
Monfai has a coffee shop and restaurant the Huan Jang Ngam, that serves the best coffees and delicious Lanna inspired food.
