Thai Hua Museum in Phuket is located in a well-maintained Sino-Portuguese building and it has a museum, exhibition space, and a function hall.
Thai Hua Museum does well in explaining Phuket’s history through many different angles with explanations about the Phuket-China connection, Thai Hua as the first Chinese-language school in Phuket, the Sino-Portuguese buildings on the island and Phuket’s traditional ceremonies, as well as its local cuisine.
Thai Hua Museum has a charming inner courtyard, which is one of the highlights of this type of Sino-Portuguese structure. The courtyard helps air the house, especially during summertime. It also has a lovely garden displaying large tools and machines from Phuket’s tin-mining years.
