Phuket Thai Hua Museum
28 Krabi Road,, Phuket, Thailand
The Thai Hua Museum occupies a building that once belonged to the oldest Chinese school in Thailand. The building opened in 1934 and served as a school until the 1990s, when the students moved to newer premises. The school was then converted into a museum that commemorates the history of learning and the legacy of Chinese immigrants in Phuket. The museum showcases photos of the school's beginnings, as well as documents chronicling the history of education in Phuket. It also offers a glimpse of the history of the city and showcases art and photography from local artists. The museum also offers workshops and lectures, as well as serving as a learning center throughout the week. Over the past few years, excavations around the building have unearthed remnants of the original structure. This was started in 1926 and then torn down to create the building that still stands today.
