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.

  • Nice place to visit, you can learn a lot of stories about the early Chinese immigrants here. When I was here people in Phuket were celebrating the veg festival, something clearly having Chinese influence. I was surprised until I saw how Chinese influenced local communities here. Ticket price 200 bahts.

  • Was good opportunity to learn how Chinese people migrated to Phuket and settled themselves. Also this helped to understand this region better and enjoy more.

  • The exhibitions were educational on the history of Chinese in Phuket. But not much antique items on display. The entrance fee of 200B seems high to me for what i could see.

  • A must visit place in Phuket especially if you are Thai. Informative guide and in depth knowledge of the history of Phuket are here with fun.

  • Tons of history telling :) Good to go! You will learn something :) Don't miss☆
