  • The old Perak Palace is turned into a modern gallery showcasing the Royal house of Perak. Having a chance to walk on the grounds of the palace is already worth the token admittance fees. Visitors CNN can get a glimpse of the royal life, as well as learning more about the history and tradition of the Perak Sultanate
  • The good place if want to learn about history of Perak Sultanate.
  • Gallery was great! Lots of interesting items to see.
  • Just a memorial on the late Sultan. Hope to have more on Perak History
  • A must visit place if you visit Kuala Kangsar. Well maintained gallery, and if you are history enthusiast, you could spent up to 3 hours here.
