Information

Located on Krabi Road, the Phuket Thai Hua Museum is run by the local Kuson Songkhroh Foundation, or Lok Xian Kok in Chinese. Comprising 13 exhibition rooms, the museum sits in a two-storey Sino-Portuguese building that used to be the first Chinese-language school in Phuket. The building is also one of the most beautiful in town, and in 2008 it received a citation from the Association of Siamese Architects for outstanding conservation of architectural arts. To explore the museum by its history, visitors are advised to start at a room marked Chinese Migration on the second floor and from there proceed clockwise to other rooms, before moving down and continuing the tour of rooms on the first floor. In the first four years of its opening, all the museum had to show visitors was historical pictures of the old town area, but with the renovation it is now able to provide an interactive service where you can touch or play with subjects on exhibit. Thanks to technical support from the National Discovery Museum Institute which manages Museum Siam in Bangkok, the Phuket outlet has in place a play and-learn mechanism to attract visitors. All information at the museum is available in both Thai and English, while some multimedia presentations are presented in Chinese. The museum opens daily from 9am to 5pm. The admission fee is 50 baht for Thais and 200 baht for foreigners. For more, visit its website at www.thaihuamuseum.com or call 076-211-224.
