Wat Lam Phaya Folk Floating Market Museum

The temple is located on the bank of Nakhorn Chaisri River and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the province because of the floating market that the temple and community helped establish in 1999. The market sells local product and food as well as provides boat services to glimpse the river ways of life. In addition, the temple is also the center for cultural integration of the community and one requirement of the center is to set up a folk museum. The museum is a Thai style wooden house on stilts located in the temple compound. It was first opened in 2000. The ground floor displays folk boats and agricultural equipment. The second floor displays several types of utensils, such as, porcelain, glassware, pottery, jars, fishing traps, wickerware, scripture chest, old banknotes and old pictures of the temple. These items were mostly donated by community members and donors’ names are written on them. The museum is managed by the temple and Lam Phaya Tambon Cultural Council and it is open on weekends. There are two volunteer curators taking turn to provide information to visitors. One is a temple officer and the other is a local school teacher.
