Arts & Museums

Phuket Trickeye Museum

Phuket Trickeye Museum is an interactive 3D painting exhibition offering amazing photo opportunities and great fun for the whole family. Located on the corner of Montri and Phang Nga roads in a large two-storey building (which used to be a popular movie theatre until 2002), Phuket Trickeye Museum features a gallery of about 100 painted and sculpted scenes using trompe-l'oeil (French for 'deceive the eye') techniques, placing visitors in hilarious unreal world-like situations. Trompe-l'oeil is an ancient painting technique that requires a certain geometrical skill; the idea is to create a three dimensional illusion on a two dimensional (flat) background. Perspectival illusionism rules at Phuket Trickeye Museum, and you are sure to be fooled by the impressive paintings on display here.


Thai Hua Museum

Thai Hua Museum is really well located, near all the beautiful historical streets and buildings of Phuket Town so you can learn about all the buildings, shops and businesses you just walked by in town. Secondly, it is done with great taste and quality design. Lastly, the history itself is well displayed, well explained and not too academic like museums often like, which makes it a pleasure to read.


Phuket Mining Museum

Phuket Mining Museum, located in Kathu on the road between Loch Palm Golf Club and British International School, is one of the island's most interesting museums. It features displays ranging from tin mine models to a recreated scene in an opium den. A visit with a guide (or someone who has some knowledge about Phuket's history) is recommended as, for now, most of the signs and descriptions are only in Thai. There's a minimal entrance fee.


Thalang National Museum

Phuket's national museum in Thalang contains ancient artifacts from Phuket and the Andaman region's long history and has exhibits about the famous Battle of Thalang where the well-known Two Heroines Chan and Mook (featured at a monument on the main road nearby) defended the island against the Burmese in the 18th century. It also has information and exhibits about daily life in Phuket, its tin mining history, the indigenous Sea Gypsy culture and the island's Chinese heritage.


Phuket Cultural Centre at Rajabhat

Phuket Cultural Centre at Phuket Rajabhat University has a modest exhibition spread over three floors showcasing the life of local southern Thais as well as Phuket's unique history and culture. Part of the exhibition includes a simulated Thai-Chinese house, a handful of vintage tin-mining items, old ceramics from China and the Netherlands, Thai shadow puppets, as well as a model of a local sea gypsy village. Since the centre does not have information in English, a guide might be needed. Visitors may request a free tour guide by calling in advance or emailing
