About Thai Hua Museum, Phuket

Once upon a time this used to be a Chinese School, now it is one of the best museums on the island that occasionally also serves as an event space. The museum building is of Sino Portuguese architecture and historic to boot. The exhibits inside explore the Chinese history of Phuket in its most salient movements. This includes the Chinese migration to the island, the lifestyle of the Chinese, the island’s relationship with mainland China, the old tin mining industry, and a room exploring the legacy of the Chinese on the island. It really gives you an insight into certain influences on the island that you may not have otherwise noticed. The exhibits are beautifully presented, lit, and efficiently arranged. Check out the charming central courtyard of the building.

  • The Thai Hua museum is quite informative, chronicling the life of Phuket Thai Chinese and how they are related to the island of Penang. However, for the price of THB 200 per entry, unfortunately some of the exhibits are not working. Otherwise the upkeep of this place seems to be quite good.

  • Little bit expensive:/ but also quite informative, so if you not sure what to do and have a little bit of money ( entrance 200baht) just visit:)

  • Worth it. First time we entered we think it just a local museum with 50 THB fees noting interesting but we were wrong it’s really good to visit there and you will know all the history of Phuket.

  • A community funded project to preserve and highlight the Chinese heritage in Phuket. Renovated from an old Chinese school, it's not big in sheer size or exhibits, but reflects well the the community spirit to their common Chinese language, culture and legacy.

  • Nice small museum in an old school building. Well organiszed. The staff is vey helpful.
