Phuket Philatelic Museum

We were here purely because Chuen (my wife and Jemma's mum) was having her haircut around the corner.

We had visited here previously and we were not impressed but as things do change we chose to visit here again.

There was a display of postage around the close Asian vicinity - Malaysia, China etc. So there was some change.

Dawn in Phuket has written the best review about the Phuket Philatelic Museum - even including some photographs of what it looked like previously - worth a look if you are interested.

Jemma loved to open all the windows that were on the display and she was excited to use a typewriter, a telephone, a two way radio and more.

Would I go? Yes but please do not expect everything that would be seen as ordinary in a Western Museum - there is still a way to go - but sometimes the museum is simply full of distractions. The Phuket Philatelic Museum needs quite a degree of input by the adult to make it a place children would want to return to.

It does have a potential however... maybe I should make a children's activity guide?
