‘Phuket Nagara’ is the name of an exciting exhibition taking place at Phuket Museum right downtown. The museum building used to be the local police station.
Phuket Nagara is tells the story of how Phuket has changed over the years from jungle to tin mining, to urbanization to tourism by using tin mining as the main theme. On the second floor of the building you’ll find an interactive activity that visitors can try by rolling over the mineral glider to see the letters under the tin bullets. The story starts with the history of the city, the mining era, prosperity and a general review from the time of Kings Rama 5 – 6 to the modern-day tourism explosion
The ‘Phuket Nagara Exhibition’ will be showing until the end of September 2018. Entrance is free and it’s open from Tuesday – Sunday from 9:00 – 16:30.
