The gate of the museum is very far from the parking lot and the city tour bus station. Through the West Malaysia Aborigine Museum and the local animation show in Malaysia. There are of course three ancient locomotives. An old bus and a small gray plane. There is also a cafe aside and a restaurant behind. Tickets for foreigner adult 5rm, native adult 2rm. It is divided into four major exhibition halls. The first exhibition hall is on the right hand side of the entrance. The starting point of the earth's plate movement. The second exhibition hall mainly centers on the replacement of the "dynasty." The development of international trade and religious national culture The third exhibition hall is the history of international smoke. The fourth exhibition hall is modern history. Been visiting the whole afternoon, left at the last minute. It is worth visiting.

Really interesting and informative museum. We had a great guided tour although we had a little difficulty finding the guide as we were a tad late so he was already guiding some others. He very kindly agreed to do a second round for us :) The displays were well set out and informative in excellent English and included in the price of the ticket was 2 more exhibits - one for pop yeah yeah and one of Malaysian cartoons. Well worth a visit :)

There are several buildings here, and they were all enjoyable. Many unique, amazing sculptures, masks and artworks, such a excellent way to spend several hours ESPECIALLY if it's hot or raining outside. I'm a big fan of masks and faces so this was extra special for me. Enjoy yourself and learn and explore our planet! So much history and art for hundreds and thousands of years, wow!

Lots of beautiful things. Nicely done up and information was interesting. Friendly service people and the traditional part of palace outside the museum is lovely. Good place to learn general knowledge of Malaysia and its rich history and people.

This museum contains a very thorough and detailed history of Malaysia. Well thought out sections lead you through different eras. I particularly enjoyed the section upstairs which explained the religious and cultural traditions of the different groups within Malaysia. Take your time as there is a lot of information to digest. Only thing that is missing is seating areas within the different wings.
