Thalang National Museum
If you want to find out more about Phuket’s history, including its archaeology, ethnology and art, head for the Thalang National Museum. In its two buidlings, the museum houses a large collection of ancient artefacts from Phuket’s long history, as well as from the neighbouring provinces of Krabi and Phang Nga.
A display reconstructs the Battle of Thalang, when the Two Heroines led the people of Phuket in repelling a Burmese invasion. Other exhibits include a display of daily life during Phuket’s tin-mining boom in the nineteenth century, and exhibits on the sea gypsies, the island’s original inhabitants.
To get to there, take the road heading east (Paklok Road) from the Heroine’s Monument. The museum is about 100m on the right.
30 Baht for adults.
Children get in free of charge.
9.00 – 16.00 daily, except on national holidays.
