This very interesting museum in Phuket features all the traditional mining traditions in Thailand. It gives a detailed overview of how mining began to how it is now through life-sisezed models.
The exhibits include a huge array of things including a very terrifying replication of an opium den. This very unique exhibit is like no other and hence is definitely recommended to any tourist who doesn’t wish to do the same old thing. It is definitely a good idea to step into it on a rainy day.

It is one of the worth seeing place in Phuket, Thailand. It is surrounded by hills. It seems that is a less known place there. It is nice. It has models of old ways of mining done. It has a collection of valuable stones too. It is in vast area. It is well maintained and kept clean. One must visit it. I visited it on 17.10.18. I liked it.
It is unfortunate that a place was started with plenty of good intentions, good backup money, but lack of experiences in planning, esp long term planning, marketing, how to attract visitors, maintenance esp outdoor exhibit, hold back this place to live up to it's full potentials.. . complete the mission as the founders intended. Location was an old mine, nicely constructed building,
Quit calm informative about mining in Phuket inthe past
Love this place. It show about how Phuket mining in ancient time worked
Interesting place to visit, learning about mining industries from the past.
