MSU Museum and Zoo

A visit to MSU Museum is an opportunity to learn about the traditional local Isan lifestyle and the history of MSU. The MSU museum comprises six buildings which are typical farm and village homes and outbuildings. As lifestyles change the museum will be a reminder of the way local people lived in the past.

One building in the museum has been devoted to a display showing the history of MSU. Interactive displays show the ways our university has changed over the years. Visitors engage with photographs and audio stories (in Thai) which include reminiscences from several generations of alumni. A conference room with seating for 45 is available within the museum.

The museum sits alongside a pond and among trees creating a delightful and peaceful atmosphere for relaxing while learning about local culture, the university and nature. It can be found on the left-hand side of the road when entering the university from Taakonyaang. The museum is open Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 4.30 pm. For enquiries, please phone 04 375 4380.

Complimenting the museum next door is a mini zoo containing four species of deer, rabbits, guinea pigs, green peafowl, red jungle fowl and several species of parrot. The zoo was set up with assistance from Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo. It is a place where families can bring their children to enjoy the animals as living creatures and also to provide opportunities for farmers to investigate possibilities of farming different species.

Between the MSU Museum and the President’s Building is a new recreation space around the pond. Many students come here in the late afternoon to meet and/or exercise.
