This is not a museum, should be called gallery for fabrics and paintings... Very poor historical displays, cannot imaging the waste of space, this is a huge building but inside is empty. Very bad narration and poorly run. Skip this if you can and just admire the architecture from outside instead.

There are not much places to visit on Kuala Terangannu other than this Museum and Crystal mosque. Museum was huge and the display was good. Not worth visiting if you are here for short term.

Most exhibitions were in malay and english. They had an interesting part about fabrics from different parts of the area. The part about woodworks was also interesting. Their exhibition about prehistoric time was disappointing.

Acclaimed as the largest of its kind in Malaysia, the Terengganu State Museum houses century old artifacts and artworks of rich and colourful heritage. Located on 27 hectares of land in Bukit Losong, Kuala Terengganu, the complex itself is an impressive architectural feature, based on the ancient Terengganu palace designs and architectures. The complex’s many galleries showcase textiles, historical artifacts,... More

It's a museum so you will see things you expect to see in a museum. Not gonna talk much bout that. The surrounding environment is good. The building itself is a traditional artistic architectural structure. It's giving a feeling of historic scenery. It has indoor part and outdoor part. Spend around 2-3 hours here and enjoy.

Visited with family and friends. At first glance, it looked great from the outside. The buildings were beautiful and surroundings were pleasant. Getting to the main entrance and ticketing booths involved a long staircase. Adult price RM5/- only. Photos are not allowed (the staff tried to take our cameras from us, even though we promised not to use it). Interestingly... More

I really like this museum in term of design and architecture.it is very large and you really need some times to watch all the exhibits.The only set point is the items could have been more as the buildings are quite big and you get the feeling of emptiness when strolling inside. Still I would really recommend to visit this with... More

Beautifully designed, good for photo taking. However, don't bother going in as they haven't filled up the areas yet (which is very huge). There are ample sample traditional boats and houses to explore in the outer grounds. That itself is interesting enough to make the trip.
