“Good past time”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

If you are interested in the history of Cameron Highlands, should visit. If you are Chinese, or are interested in the Chinese culture, definitely must visit this place.

Went to this museum because of the pouring rain, which was a right decision. Spent a whole afternoon there and took more pictures than the Cameron Highlands itself. The artifacts can be touched and there were a lot of information of Cameron Highlands and how people lived. I felt that I was travelled back in time! Tired a hot cup of strawberry tea (interesting) with 20% discount (keep your ticket) afterwards. Definitely well worth the RM 5 admittance fee.

“Brought back the good old days”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

So glad we went in. A vast collection of memorabilia from 60's 70's and 80's. Actually a lot of things were from last century also. Great collection of vinyls. A barber chair from many many years ago. So much stuff to admire. Well worth the RM 5 admittance fee. The story of Jim Thompsons disappearance in the jungle was very interesting.

“Too Much of History Passed Us”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

It is a museum slash gallery slash interactive center. It has almost the same items you can find in any toy museums or antique shops in the country but here it is not an ordinary museum.

Not sometime you imagine in am museum, visitors can actually touch most of the artifacts displayed (most artifacts originated from the 1960s to 1980s Malaysia) and have a lot of fun photos with it. Some items are quite rare, which include photos of old Cameron Highlands and some are quite tacky, like advert signboards and beer paraphernalia.

There's few bottle of drinks which probably from the 1980s displayed on the table and what made me wonder the most is what is the taste of a curdled soy drink....

“Don't miss it in Cameron Highland!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I rarely like museum but this museum is something that takes you to several years back and you will see many old stuffs and photos there and remind you those times. It is one of the best attractions in Cameron highland. There is a RM 5 fee for entrance. It worth it. Don't miss it as the entrance is not highlighted. it is just a few minutes driving from Brinchang.

“Good place to recall memories of our childhood”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is a small "museum-like" exhibition where you'll find the long lost items when we have seen as a small kid. You'll be surprised things like the old Milo tin, charcoal iron, old Dumex tin, TV in a box cabinet (those with sliding doors-if you know what I mean). If you are into antique stuffs, this place is definitely worth a visit!
