about TH 01
Roi-Et National Museum is initially established by the idea of Prof.Dr.Goh Swasdipanich, former Minister of Education, who wants to have a museum for maintaining and displaying Isan art and handicraft, especially silk and local cloth. During that period, the policy of Fine Arts Department focused on establishing provincial museum, particularly the new one. As a result, these two ideas are merged and become the Roi Et National Museum.
