    A discreet visit without a photo of the interiors that yet are very exceptional. Furniture d time with gilding. The Museum actually represents the old Castle. In the end the Castle n is not large and seems modest. Through the different rooms you can imagine the old Royal life. It is however beautiful and green spaces give a majestic presence. .../...

    Actually used the Sultan during previous visits, so a gorgeous gate could only gaze out at the Palace to get itself is touched. Is a small building with a yellow roof on a long uphill climb, but inside is as Japan of Dunhuang and and or decorated with European-style furnishings and decor, although not a spectacular show. Interior photography is prohibited. Building next to the current Sultan's belongings, life-size panel exhibit and a photo shoot was possible here. In the morning I went, but fewer people, could see the gently. Taxi is convenient approach. If you return to the person at the ticket counter you ask me call a taxi in vehicle applications.

    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.

    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.
