From the 1910’s, this place was being used as a granary. It was transformed into a Cultural Art Village in 2013 and has developed into a popular tourist attraction for visitors to this region. Now, Samnye locals have become patrons of the Culture Art Village, which also provides a relaxing atmosphere from the busyness of life. The Culture Art Village is divided into several display areas such as the carpenter’s shop, art museum, café, book workshop, and more.
