  • A place where both locals and tourists should really checked out and its pretty reasonable as well price wise. The rooms and photos around the old palace were beautifully preserved. I only wish there were more information why the King moved to the new palace.
  • Great landscape design & old architecture national palace. RM5 admission fee. Worth to visit
  • It was Malaysian Royal Place long time ago. Now it become a museum to feel the environment of the Royal Families. It open to all with low entrance fee
  • Theres good buggy service but no curator for the muzium exhibits. And not much to see just the scenery..
  • An old palace turned into museum brought us a chance to see a glimpse of Malaysian royal families. Unfortunately, no cameras are allowed inside the museum.
