Review of Kathu Mining Museum

Very quiet and seemed like only us around. We bought a ticket and got into the exhibition area which is a Sino building surrounding a courtyard. We learnt a lot of interesting about tin mining but some part of the exhibition needs another renovation. Most people don’t know about this place and without coming this way to other attractions, there is no necessity to come… nothing is outstanding but good to come.

Review of Kathu Mining Museum

Nice place if you are a history buff and want to learn more about how Phuket gained notoriety with the tin industry and the influence of Chinese settlers. Very few visitors.

Review of Phuket Seashell Museum

A lot of interesting and amazing shell collections. Although it is not a must see place, it’s worth visiting if you pass by Rawai area. Good to come!

Review of Kathu Mining Museum

Recommend to make a group of friends to go there as it’s located in suburb area of Kathu. I think it’s a very informative cultural and historical attraction of Phuket. There are exhibitions about Tin mining method and Phuket’s people way of life at that time. The museum was built in the Sino-Portuguese style similar to buildings around the old Phuket Town area. Reasonable entrance fee. But it’s a bit quiet, not many people visit there.

A rainy day in Phuket might be an excuse to visit one of the few museums on the island. Listed below are three museums with the most popular being the Thalang Museum with its exhibitions on the history and culture of Phuket.
