  • If you are interested in understanding Phukets origins and development up to the 1950's then this is the place to visit. It is not hands on in any way therefore not for children unless you have a loca...  more »
  • Stopped by chance. Got lost on the way to the waterfall. At the exposition and territory took no more than 40 minutes. Children would love-a lot can touch, Dummies of primitive people and affected workers are completely authentic. A typical Museum, not particularly outstanding. Specially not worth it.

  • This museum traces the lives of the men arrived on the island: the mines of precious stones, modes of transport, life at home, social life, etc. in a beautiful building. Outside, it is a park with beautiful trees and a Lake immence. Bath 100 entry price is € 2.50. You can stay as long as you want and take pictures of everything but not video...

  • To be honest, didn't expect anything much here, however so many precious historical things accumulated here. What a shame, it has not been taken care too well or use to it's maximum capabilities.
  • A good museum to take the kids for an hour or two if you'll walk slow and look at everything in details. It's not too big and not too small. The display is mostly of relevant material and few not so relevant. All in all, it is a nice stop during your day in Phuket.
  • About 15-20 minutes worth of content. Mostly in Thai. Kind of a waste of time / money. Some commentors said you could take your kids here for an hour or two?! Most of the exhibits are not touch-friendly or are falling apart. Lots of rusty tools with sharp edges in easy reach though...
  • Very good history for kids about 6 to 12
  • Small but lovely, only the entrance fee is different between local foreigners
