Ok local record of the Chinese contribution to the development of Johor. Well maintained. Exhibits don't change so 1 visit is enough.

But only if you have some spare time. I like museums and also chinese culture so i thought to see this museum. It didnt dissapoint because its filled with little "did you know?" facts, wich where intersting. But it is a small museum and there i not a whole lot to see, so if you need to kill some time,...

We went on the insistence of our adult son who said it was worth seeing and he was right. Did you know, for example, that it used to be necessary to have a registration paper to smoke opium? Well, did you?

A very well organised museum on three levels. Plenty of exhibits to see and a great place to gain an understanding of Johor Bahru's beginnings. I found the accounts of Chinese Secret Societies to be intriguing. Well air-conditioned and nicely presented.

Getting there... More

not much special is worth to pay a visit once but not twice as the ticket is cheap. Traffic there is very inconvenience, streets behind the building worth to walkabout some interesting shops, cafe available.
