  • We went there the last weekend, arrived around 4pm. Was met by a very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable guide Jackie. Took us around for 1 hour, and gave a top class lecture on the history of tin mining industry. First class. Too busy listening to him to look at the exhibits. Will make another trip to do that!
  • Very imformative & educative museum. A good place to learn kampar tin mining history. Free to visit
  • 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!
  • A free entrance museum showing the history of tin mining in lembah kinta. It shows the model of tin mining, tools, activities and there's a outdoor exhibition of palong set. However, it needs more explanation on the exhibition, or a touring guide. Otherwise visitors not really understand the process at all.
