  • This museum is not so far from Kuah, if you go to the North. If you are traveling on a bike or a car that does not pass by, it is located along the road. There is free parking on site. This is actually a complex of buildings United transitions and here you can see anything from a sailboat and machines to the Soviet dagger. You name it, a lot are really works of art, there is a simple protocol gifts. Describe it's pointless, because there is all. Particularly impress vases and utensils work fine, Japanese dolls and bladed weapons. Here is something interesting for yourself and find any child and adult. To explore all this needs a few hours, although after a while you start to get tired of all this splendour. But all the sooner you pass all the territory. The Museum is open from 9 to 17.

  • All the things related to our former Prime Minister Dato' Dr. Mahathir is displayed so neat and beautifully with some short and brief info regarding the items shown. I love the internal atmosphere, it's so calm and cozy with good lighting too.
  • Loved the place ,need a couple of hours to walk around , dropped a star off as tea and coffee shop closed ,looks like it's never open,lots to see ,not really for children and some of the displays a bit dark so have problem seeing where the items come from , good car parking , there is a charge for cameras and video but only 2 ringt
  • Every time I go to langkawi, I will definitely go to the Galeria Perdana. The gallery looks even better than the Kedah State Museum located in the city of Alor Setar.
  • A good place to learn about Dr. Mahathir's gifts from all over the world.
  • Where is all the Tun Dr Mahathir archivement like as a PM of Malaysia.. Great for historical nerd and the place *really need* to maintenance because the no fresh air and air conditioner..
