I simply love the architecture of this old colonial building. the collections are quite decent and they have closed the upper level; which contains some of the Orang Asli collections due to some restoration of the buildings.
The first museum to be built in Malaysia. The museum has Moorish characteristics as well as a combination of Neo classical and Victorian influence. The museum is rich in ethnological, historical, archaeological and ethamobological collections. A great place to learn of the history of Perak.
The only thing worth seeing is the old colonial building, great architecture, facade looks like a palace. The museum has the normal exhibits/ replica of animals,traditional dressing,old bones,old junks, 1 aeroplane,4 old cars, some trishaws n an old funeral van. Lighting is good n bright.parking...More
There are only few chambers of exhibition. The items are very well presented. But as a state museum - there should be more on the tin mining industry and stories of British rule. There shd be more stories of the world war.
