  • Best place to learn about Kelantan’s Monarch. From the fist sultanate until the current. Info well written and organized.

  • One of the most underated museums in the state, featuring the opulance of the Kelantanese royal family. I like the settings & layout with various gifts from all over the world & personal collection of the royalties themselves.
  • Interesting look into the life of royalty. The exhibits such as the royal souvenirs could be better labelled. Some of the rooms did not have enough ventilation. Otherwise one of the most-sees of Kelantan. The museum is well maintained, clean, organized and cool (not hot). There are many exhibits in the museum. It's the best place to know history of Kelantan royal family. The palace is yellow in colour & made by stone
  • They only charge RM2 per person. No air condition. The regalia and all the things that they put in display are not arranged properly. Many of them are some old stuff presented to the Kings and Queens as royal gift. They were also not enough information and stories about the things on display.
  • Interesting place to visit to know the history of the Kelantan Royal families. Good to visit for first time visit.
  • Go Istana Jahar before you visit here.
