Museum? Or art gallery? They only had a display of some art pieces when I visit this time. Time wasting and not worth a visit. Nice architecture but nothing to offer. A disappointment.

When we were in Ipoh, the ground floor of the museum was beng used for a temporary exhibition of amateur paintings and as a venue to hand out start numbers for an athletic event. Top floor was a mess.

The museum is on upgrading per March 2015, with almost no signage. However, the building alone is worth to visit, especially for architecture geek.
