Thai Hua Museum
Thai Hua Museum in Phuket

Located on one of the island’s historical streets, this stunning 74-year old mansion, which blends European styles with Chinese touches, was the first Chinese school on the island. Today it attempts to keep a record of the Chinese people in Phuket. Covering two floors and 13 rooms of the building, the museum traces the arrival of the Chinese in Phuket and the early organization of the community. Using both photographs and video it also showcases the mining industry, local costumes, Sino-Portuguese architecture, local foods, the traditions and culture of Phuket. The front gate made from cast iron was imported from Yates, Haywood & Co, London. The building also features a beautiful courtyard and a garden that displays the heavy tools and machine for the tin mining era. Take the family.
