It is very dull place to visit... but if you need to take a look at the house of Minangkabau architecture, that you can have it. In order to make it more attractive, this place was having an Egypt history exhibition with some replicas... well, that has added more colors to it, else... nothing much here.

This is definitely one place to skip if you're on a short day trip to Seremban unless you happen to be passing by the area. With such a name as 'State Museum' and 'Cultural Complex', you'd expect something decent, but this was not the case here. Indeed the architecture of the main museum building and surrounding wooden houses are interesting,... More

Has 2 actual size traditional houses which you can climb in & walk around inside the houses. Has permanent display related postal services & history of state. There is an old steam train engine on display also. Good to bring young kids explore a little bit

I saw others comment and decided to go there by myself. It is a very simple cultural center. Area for improvement is lighting setup at the display area need to be brighten, especially at Stamp corner and Level 1 of the main building.

I don't know where to begin with this place - how about Wikipedia? Because I learned more about the State and it's history and culture from a 5 minute browse on wikipedia than in this place. Probably the highlight of the experience was the "House built entirely without nails" with so many nails holding it together that you can actually... More

Waste of time and money. Rundown and no customer service. Next to a major highway and polluted with haze.
