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.

We visited this museum, which exhibits the history of the past Chinese settlement in Phuket, as part of a longer tour around Phuket and, as a consequence, we had only about 45 minutes to look around. There was rather too much information to absorb in...More
