Tourists not from malaysia need to pay extra 5ringgit. Overall the museum is full of mahsuri's history with the old kampong, wells. You can also get traditional food inside.

Not much to see. Try avoiding this place if you need to. Cannot understand the whole point of this place but just a lot of shop selling trinkets and souvenirs

Now this is one of those backup place on your list of to do things, if you have completed everything else. The place itself tells about a story of a girl wrongfully accused...other than that there are some beautiful classic and local buildings.

A very interesting and inspired place to visit but its not attractive enough if you don't know the history. It would be good if they provide in house guide who will guide you on the in house tour and explain more on the history

This place have replica of Mahsuri parents house. And the water from the well is really cold. The tomb really well maintained. BUT, the wax figure kinda creepy when I stand alone in a room.
