  • I really enjoyed this place. The entrance fees just rm4 for a person and you could get rm2 for a student or old folks. Really fun to visit and they got really nice place to capture on. If you are into landscape ofcourse.
  • The architecture of the building is very nice and the environment and facilities are very well managed. Perfect place to learn about the former ruler of Perak; Sultan Azlan Shah.
  • A serene place to take a glimpse into the royalty life. A great place to take photos outside. Beautiful architecture
  • Good place to learn about the Perak sultanate. I visit this place whenever I pass by K.Kangsar and they never fix the air-conditioning... For a gallery dedicated to our Sultan, it's a shame -_-"
  • An interesting collection of artifacts and stories. The museum is beautiful and well maintained. A pleasant experience.
