  • Tells about the history of the Chinese in the area. Nothing really stands out as remarkable, but they try to do a decent job.
  • A quaint museum with a set of well curated artefacts and multimedia exhibits. A must-visit if you are in the area and need a rest from eating. Costs 6 ringgit per entry and it has three storeys of exhibits.
  • A very well-done mini museum documenting history of Chinese immigrants in Johor under the kangcu system and for plantation of gambier. I am pleasantly surprised with the depth they go. At the ticketing counter, they sell books about Johorean Chinese history, all of which are quite interesting. It is worth a short trip (about 1 hour). There are a few cafes and traditional Kopitiam nearby. Do take note that parking can be ridiculously hard to find.
  • Nice little museum illustrating the rich history of early Chinese immigrant to Johor Bahru and their contribution to the area.
  • Chinese tradition 🗞♥
