The dinosaur museum at Kalasin is smaller than many people expect but, in my opinion, it is one of the best museums in Thailand. As one walks around the museum the creation of the universe is explained and then the formation of earth. Things like plate tectonics, volcanic activity and tsunamis are explained and demonstrated before one moves onto the section about life on earth. Visitors are then taken through the process of life evolving on earth and then the dinosaur exhibits are the centrepiece, beginning with the dinosaurs discovered in Thailand and then moving on to others. Finally mammals and the evolution of humans is dealt with before leaving the museum.
The area is know as Isaan Jurassic Park in reference to the Isaan region of Thailand and the well-known movie.
Five species of dinosaur have been first found and named in Thailand: Phuwiangosaurus sirindhornae, Siamotyrranus isanensis, Siamosaurus suteethorni, Psittacosaurus sattayaraki, Isanosaurus attavipachi.
