  • 館內有多幅提供參觀人士影相的畫,主要給參觀者了解馬來西亞的人口分佈,種俗的習俗、物種及動物標本等等。不是太豐富。  more »
  • It's well maintained but exhibits are really limited. There are not much information provided for reading. Overall, it's a little boring for me as there weren't much to see.  more »
  • Came by to see what is there. Small museum. Not many things to see. Well kept and clean. Very quiet. You can visit with your loved ones for some quiet time.  more »

  • The building is of British Colonial architecture. It is the first and oldest museum in Malaysia founded in 1883. Within the museum there were 3D murals, animal skeletons, handiworks, handicrafts and weavings, the aborigines gallery and others. Outside the building were antique cars, horse carriage and statues of British officers. The museum was interesting with plenty to see and read. Entrance fee was only RM2.
  • Great little museum the exhibits were well set up and have a great introduction to the region and tin.. Orang Asli exhibits are really great.
  • Come here if you want to know the history of perak
  • Sometimes a museum is a museum of a museum on it's own. That's the case here. Nothing modern around, just old showcases with mostly unreadable explanations. Some natural history with stuffed animals, some folklore, thats it. Good to spend half an hour or so.
  • I expected more local history out there. What a disappointment.
