The museum is small and a little bit hard to find cause it is behind a big gem factory. But worth to visit as the only place you can learn a bit about the history of Phuket.

Lovely to whole families out enjoying themselves together. There are a few traditional venders with Thai food but although there is a toilet block it's really filthy. Nice beach but no seats for oldies like us.

Despite driving somewhere near on several occasions, despite putting it into our SatNav we never managed to find Thalang National Museum - so sadly nothing to report.

The National Museum is open Wednesdays-Sundays from 9:00-4:00. It's closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and public holidays. There are two outdoor exhibits including one on the sea gypsies and traditional food in Phuket, but unfortunately the information presented is only in the Thai language.
