Peranakan Phuket Museum

Museum of Peranakan Heritage in Thalang

Peranakan Phuket Museum offers you the chance to learn and absorb the history of Phuket through gorgeous architectural surroundings. This museum in the Thalang area is progressively becoming one of the island's top attractions and is a great alternative for people wanting to soak up the culture while looking for an alternative way to cool off during the hot summer months.

As the museum is quite small, it doesn't take long to walk around. Even so, there are plenty of interesting things to see and do, like dressing up in the costumes of the past at the photo studio connected to the Museum. The beautiful Yaya Kitchen restaurant and the stylish Café Pinana both provide refreshments and a great way to end a day well spent in Phuket.
