Phuket to host first Southern Thailand Museum Festival

PHUKET: For the first time, more than 30 museums from across Southern Thailand will be collaborating to create a single event: the Southern Thai Museum Festival 2012, to be held in Phuket next week.

“Visitors will be able to experience the exhibition which will include precious antique objects. We are proud to be able to show these antiques as they are valuable in terms of Southern Thai history,” explained Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwansupana.

“Phuket was chosen by the National Discovery Museum Institute [NDMI] as the host for this event because of our unique Sino-Portuguese architecture and long history,” she added.

The festival will be held from September 21-23 at four venues in Phuket Town:

• The Phuket Thaihua Museum on Krabi Road;

• Phuket City Municipality Tourist Information Center on Thalang Road;

• Chalermrat Cultural Center Baba Phuket, housed in the Old Standard Chartered Bank on the crossroads of Phang Nga Road and Phuket Road; and

• Phuket Thaihua Club on Dibuk Road.

Entrance will be free and the doors open from 9am to 8pm.
