Its a good place to get to know a little bit more about the history of the island. You can take a taxi here and there is a an entrance fee. Its not a true tomb there, but a musuem replicalte of the history, the staff working there are very friendly.

Lot of information, well managed now compared to last time. Lot of information provided. There also got video show inside the museum so you can understand... More

As the name implies, it's a moseleum. But you have to pay RM 7 to get in. Outside there a lot of shops selling souvenirs. Once inside you'll be greeted with a photo session, traditional music, mannequin reenactment of Mahsuri tragedy and more souvenirs shops. There also traditional houses and live bands and more souvenirs shops. The total is right... More

Mahsuri legend is very well known in Malaysia. In fact, it is one of the famous country traditional story, just like the tale Puteri Gunung Ledang. But unfortunately, I did not enjoy this place as much as I love the story. For first timer however, you might find the legend intriguing. But personally I think there should be an improvement,...

rushing on our way to airport, we dropped by this place as this has a significance in Langkawi's history about 2 centuries ago. Kid was excited to learn about the happenings, leaving a sort of heavy heart when you walk out of this place..good to visit if you have interest in history of the place

The story itself is intriguing and interesting and is so relevant to Langkawi so I think it is worth visiting for that alone. It wasn't what I was expecting, it is more touristy and busy than I expected ( even in low season), but also has more going on than I had imagined, although the exhibits are quite basic and... More

If that is your thing.... It was a meh exhibition of the legend Mahsuri, the display looks fake, almost everything in the museum was cheesy. Nevertheless we quite enjoy the gamelan play & the kampung houses.
