The place itself is a historic place where you can't get the story in other places in Malaysia. But too bad the management don't see it that way. This place is desperately need a major improvement. I'm Malaysian but somehow going to this place is feeling like a total rip-off. I've expected to learn more about the story behind Mahsuri... More

A good place to go if you like history so much, just that the buildings so confusing like a maze, inside there also some Malay girls play Malay music instrument, very nice to explore their culture.

This museum has potential. Good buildings, lovely location and loads of parking. I wasn't too sure once we had entered and followed the trail. I really enjoyed the ladies in traditional costume playing the Caklempong, although they only played a few bars and sat back which was a shame as the music is lovely. The shop is large and well...

See the beautiful reconstructed timber houses that were the residences of Mahsuri's family some 200 years ago. Read about her tragic death and visit the grave. The gardens were in flower and filled with birds and butterflies. Takes about 45 mins to complete the visit. Tranquil and relaxing atmosphere.

I just reached the ticketing counter at 4.40pm and it was stated clearly (a notice on the window) that the operating hours end at 5pm. But the staff just told us off that it's already close and refuse to sell the ticket to us. Totally understand that this month is the fasting month for the Muslim people but this has... More

So much has changed since I came here back in 1997. I was bit surprised that they do not have a special entrance fee for senior citizens, so we paid RM10 (adult). A complex has been built surrounding Mahsuri's tomb and house. We visited the Mahsuri's tomb. The trees were not trimmed and the tomb was not kept clean! Hmm.... More

Take it from me a trip to Mahsuri's tomb is not something to have at the top of your list. We drove around a bit before eventually finding it - the closer you get to it the fewer signposts for some reason. We went up to pay the small entrance fee & were told to go to the next window... More

An educational visit for all of Us who have read about this Beautiful Princess. Princess Mahsuri was wrongly accused of commiting adultery with the story teller. There is a video presentation about her story. Very sad. Her old house as in centuries old has been preserved for fellow tourists to feel the old world magic of her place. Please remember... More
