  • For a free museum, this museum delivers both quality and quantity aspect. They has has many illustrations and mannequins to help in portraying the tin mining history but in the same time, it is compact with details. You can walk around the museum too see the tin miner lifestyle and technology of tin mining. Besides that, the guard of this museum is talkative and friendly towards visitors.
  • Informative and plenty of materials/exhibits to highlight the tin mining trade that once made this place famous all over the world. However, there are very little hands-on materials to promote interactivity with the visitors. But at least entrance is free!
  • Nice place beside Nashmir Restaurant, Bandar Baru Kampar. It is very suitable to know the history of tin mines & tin dredging in Perak
  • Free entrance. The museum is good for history buff about open tin mining in Malaysia in the Kinta valley. There are souvenir sold at museum shop.
  • Historical place about tin mining, and how local Chinese migrant strike for a living, and history about how WWI and WWII has help tin mining boom in Malaya times..
