Many artifacts, beautifully designed models and an accompanying English documentary give some insight into the past of the island and the history of mining. Admission of 100 Bath per person is very moderate. There is also a tour through the outdoor area, where you can walk to an artificial lake and also here there are various exhibition pieces to look at.

  • It is one of the worth seeing place in Phuket, Thailand. It is surrounded by hills. It seems that is a less known place there. It is nice. It has models of old ways of mining done. It has a collection of valuable stones too. It is in vast area. It is well maintained and kept clean. One must visit it. I visited it on 17.10.18. I liked it.
