What people are saying:

This is a huge museum with many unexpected, educational, interesting and peculiar exhibits. The cost is 50 baht per person. We are the only guests, visiting slowly at a pace we like. The staff will not bother you, and will not charge extra for taking pictures. At that time, the air conditioner was not turned on and the weather was very hot. You can buy a bottle of cold water for 10 baht. It is pleasant to drive here, there are plenty of parking spaces, and there is a lot of space for children to explore. My kids love it and would love to visit again. I have been to Phuket many times, but I have never heard of and never visited this wonderful museum. This was recommended to me by my personal driver (a unique half-day trip arranged for me by a female taxi driver in Phuket). This suggestion is really great. This museum is really a hidden treasure, where interesting modern history materials are displayed everywhere (including various audios and videos, see the video I shared for details). The classics here combine archaeology, biology, history and humanities, ancient craftsmanship, machinery manufacturing, geology and geography, etc., for a comprehensive display and education. I have to say that it is really worth a visit (ticket is only 100 baht) and it is no exaggeration to say that it is really great.
