The principle of ontology was used to design and create historical meaningful. The results of ontology evaluation are as follows: 1) the ontology that are designed can be used with the semantic search of cultural artifacts that are in line with Lanna historical knowledge. 2) Based on the evaluation of overall search efficiency from experts, it was found that the average value was 4.50, the system was developed to respond to the use of experts as well. When considering the items that are significant from the topics that are very good at the average 5, such as “Search results of information resources are in accordance with the requirements” from the evaluation of the search results show that the search of information based on ontology.

The design that makes it very responsive to the search needs Therefore; from the research results, this research is beneficial to the museum, there are tools for knowledge management. Increasing the value of existing information to be knowledgeable, beneficial to education and sustainable social development
