Information

Phuket Mining Museum is situated on an about 400 rai area. The area was once a large mineral mine with rich natural resources which was a very significant economic foundation of Phuket at the time. However, soon after tin is depleted, the mine was abandoned and became desolated, until 2007 when Kathu municipality came to develop the site into a mining museum. The museum is surrounded by naturally rich hills. Exhibitions include the history of tin mining and Phuket's way of living in the past, divided into rooms called: the Chief Miner Quarter, the Glorious Earth, the Earth Mining, the Alchemist Quarter, the Fisherman's Life, the Local Livings, the Civilization, and the Excellent Wisdom.
