All displays have inscriptions in English which is very helpful in museum environment. 200B for entry is probably a bit steep but everything in Phuket is expensive so hard to fault that. We were given a short intro that was useful and then allowed to...More

If you are interested in Chinese businessmen and Chinese immigrants in Phuket, then this walking picture book/story board set inside an old house is the museum for you. If not, a photo taken from the outside should suffice and you’ll save yourself 200 TBH per...More

In self the building was very fascinating. In side there as a two floor exhibition telling about the former life in Phuket. It was very interesting to get the sight of this former life in town.

It was lovely to wander through this old mansion, once a school. Exhibits were comprehensive and all were translated into English. Cost of 200Baht is worth it. Although we didn't go inside the attached cafe, it looked very good.
