  • An iconic building on the site of a disused mine. After 10 Phuketbesuchen we have overcome us finally on a cloudy day to visit this place. Some artifacts, lovingly designed models and an accompanying documentation provide some insight into the island's past and the history of mining. You can expect no Museum of European standards, but this place is well worth a visit. 100 bath per person is very moderate and is more on tipping level after a dinner. Also a small tour on the outdoor unit is recommended, also here you can see remains of the former industrial plants.

  • Quite interesting. Quiet place, only a few people were there. Good representation of tin production and people's ways of life. Would be better if more explanations were translated. Good place to visit if you are tired of beaches and crowds and want to learn something new.
  • A lot of history of the island. Tour only takes about 15 minutes. The entire tour is inside and air conditioned. Very interesting and highly recommended is you want to learn more about Phuket.
  • Interesting museum, not too many people here. Not a must, but a can do.
  • A very nice Museum. There is not very much to see, but is still worth a visit, and on the back, or return to the floating market in KATU look at, which is on the way.
