  • I was here when it was first opened to public. If you were too, a re-visit would give you a completely different perspective. It's a fairly old palace in malaysian standards but not quite as glamoriou...  more »
  • This beautiful mansion shows how the king lives as it was a past residence of the king. Beautiful furniture, rooms and decor. Shows the throne room, room where people wait for an audience with the kin...  more »

  • Museum that little bit small for me but pack with royal heritage info and pictures hanging along the residence wall. The Interior was fantastic at the royal highness sleeping and preparation chamber. Everyone should check em out. Unfortunately, visitor cant take pictures and shoes must be left out at the entry door. Overall, it was a great place to visit for locals and an informative and interesting place to go for International visitors.
  • It' nothing to get too worked up about. It's a fancy house, with an interesting past. They don't let you take photos of the inside, but then I couldn't find any kind of tourism book or pamphlet that you could have to take with you as memories of what it looked like. Because of that, in only a few days I've already forgotten what the interior was like.
  • Old king’s palace turns to museum. You will find the kind of luxuries enjoyed by 1st to 6th centuries kings of Malaysia. One of the finest art, furniture bathtubs etc. are points of attraction. There are separate bathrooms, vanity rooms, waiting rooms and bed rooms for the royal families. A 20 minutes visit to watch unparalleled luxury.
  • Royal palace museum.. very nice. Can see right on the street
  • Great experience there learning how the the Yang di-Pertuan Agong's used to look like. However, it was very hot and stuffy in the museum.
