Why Phuket Quirkiest Museum is special ?

Located in the Thavorn Hotel, the Thavorn Hotel Lobby Museum has a small collection of unique artifacts. The collection includes several old photos of Phuket and Thailand, plus odds and ends from different eras, ranging from hats, toys and furniture. It is a small and eccentric exhibit, but you'll be sure to find artifacts here that you wouldn't see in any other museum in Phuket.

What to explore at Phuket Quirkiest Museum?

+ There are some sculptures and antiques are displayed behind windows, nothing really impressive, but you might learn a thing or two about the past trades of Phuket..
+ You will see an assortment of artifacts and photos, gathered by the Chinese-Thai family who run the Thavorn group, are displayed erratically in a rather dingy and dim setting.

I used to be there for 2 nights and the prices are so expensive, about 550 baht. But you will take what you paid. The condition in Thaivorn hotel is so perfect, though the old appearance. One thing that makes me surprised is the Thaivorn museum or other name called the quirkiest museum. It’s inside the hotel and opens daily 24 hours. However, you have to pay 30 baht for entrance fee. This spaces can bring you come back to the ancient beauty with many old pictures and clothings. It’s so excited when you discover the new beauty that hide inside the dusty thing. It’s requested that you should come to there one time on your trip.
