Day 4: 3D Museum, Suan Buak Haad & Lanna Folk Museum

Our final day out was filled with local cultural learning experiences. Today the IEP students were treated to a real taste of Chiang Mai, combining technological fun at the 3D picture museum, with a trip to the park to catch the remnants of a beautiful flower festival, and ending the day with yet another museum focusing on local culture and history.
The 3D museum is always a hit with our students, they love taking pictures with their friends (teachers as well!) presented with an array of different silly and scary scenarios.

After the museum we travelled to Suan Buak Haad, a beautiful local park located right inside of the old city, for lunch, play and relaxation.

Planting vegetables in bamboo hammocks, creating edible gardens, beautiful and practical.


The Lanna Sword Dancer, a favourite sculpture in the park.



We ended our day with one last museum, the Lanna Folk Museum, where students learned many new things about the old days of Lanna culture; from traditional fabrics and dress, to ancient Buddhist art works.


This was a great last day out to end our final four days of learning outside of the classroom, tomorrow we will engage in discussion, learning extensions and projects to help students synthesise their learning.
