Juan Pooh Wah museum Nai Muang, Muang Nakhon Phanom, Nakhon Phanom. Originally, the residence was a personal property of Lord Adulyadejsiammaysuanpakdeepiriyapaha (Aui Nakorntup), lieutenant governor of Udornthani monthon and the first governor of Nakhonpanom province.
 
The building was constructed between 1912 – 1914 by a Vietnamese builder. Both the upper and lower storeys have no support column as the structure was built using wood joinery technique. 
 
Later, in 1927, Lord Adulyadej sold the building to The Ministry of Interior at a price of 20,000 Baht.  It was then used as the official residence for successive Nakornpanom’s provincial governors. Between 12 and 13 December 1955, the building was used as a residence for His Majesty the King Rama IX and Her Majesty the Queen Sirikit who were visiting Thai people in Northeastern region.
 
Today, Thailand’s Fine Arts Department has registered Juan Pooh Wah museum as an Archaeological site and Nakornpanom’s main museum.
 
Juan Pooh Wah museum is a prominent example of architecture in Nakornpanom. It exhibits fine western architectural style as the design was influenced by French architecture during Indochina wars.
 
The museum’s entrance is an arch door with a lunette on top and the roof does not slope sharply. Despite its old age, the building is so well-preserved that its original beauty can still be seen.
 
The museum has been improved to be an important historical attraction of Nakornpanom and has an "Pictures tell tales" exhibition, which uses pictures to portray the history of the province.
