The trails of the world’s great geological wonders found their home in the Northeastern province of Kalasin in Thailand when the accidental finding of dinosaur fossils led into full-blown international excavation efforts that later expanded into a complete exhibition of one of the world’s greatest geological wonders.
Inside the Sirindhorn Museum, one will find a real paleontological treasure, harking back to the origins of the Earth. This museum makes a wonderful visit for those wishing to learn more about dinosaurs in Thailand. Highlights of the exhibits include the Phuwiangosaurus sirindhorn – the first sauropod (herbivorous dinosaur) found in the Kingdom and was name after Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
