  • This is quite a pretty structure a short walk from the heart of the old town in Phuket Town. The signs said that it closed at 4pm and it certainly wasn't possible to go inside when I was there shortly...  more »

  • Interesting back story of the ancestors who were a wealthy tin mining family before the tin business suffered. Now one of the descendants still lives in the house so we you enter you can feel that house is still in use by the medicine bottles and the kitchen spices. We learned that the owner has a feud with his/her sibling who rents out the former tin company office next door to Blue Elephant restaurant so that’s why there is a spiked fence between the formerly connected properties. However the building that is more beautifully preserved is certainly the so-called Governor’s mansion occupied by the Blue Elephant restaurant.
  • Its an old mansion with lot of antique articles. Building is well maintained, with lot of antique furnitures. It's not a crowded place, when I had been there , only 1 other family were watching the museuem. I paid 200 baht for entrance and it's worth it. I spent around 1 hr looking around the place. I would recommend others to visit this place.
  • A grand old Peranakan house. Stuff inside are typically found in such home. Refreshing to find the Tok Panjang table inside and a fish pool inside. Now this is something worth valuing.
  • Beautiful place 😊
  • It's a privately run house museum that was feature in several movies including 'Heaven and Earth'. Built in 1903, it does have a certain charm and since it's not too far from historical streets of Phuket ton so you can add it to your exploration.
