In 1965, Mr E established the first factory called the Dhanababesakul Crockery, which is where the famous chicken bowls are produced; eventually, these bowls became famous all over Thailand.
What makes this museum special is that they produce ceramics while preserving the very same ancient techniques that were handed down from generation to generation. Each and every ceramic product made here is handmade; everything from preparing the raw materials to setting and firing at the Dragon kiln, which is the oldest kiln in Lampang.
At the museum, visitors get to learn about the fascinating history of the Dhanabadee Group, the iconic chicken bowl that placed Lampang on the map, and a general history of Thai ceramics.
The Dhanabadee Ceramic Museum offers a range of interesting activities including a live demonstration of making the chicken bowl, how the Dragon kiln is used, and visitors also have the chance to participate in workshops to make their very own ceramics to take home as a souvenir.
The museum is open daily from 9am to 5pm, except Mondays. The entrance fee is 100 Thai baht for adults, and 60 baht for kids. There are guided tours in English every hour starting at 9AM and the last one at 4PM.
It’s located around 350 meters from the Phaholyothin Highway; visitors can hire a songthaew from Lampang to get there.
