Perak State Museum, Taiping Reviews
Ok for locals to recall some of the history that we might forgot and its good to know some history about Malaysia and also get to know the wildlife of Malaysia
The local animal display were a bit scary, but knowledgeable for young generation.
It is a well maintained museum in the small town of Taiping. Quite surprisingly it is better than quite a lot of other city museums in term of arrangements and exhibits, another place worth visiting and to spend 1 to 2 hours with a small fee of RM 2 for Malaysians and RM 5 for foreigners.
For a museum with such size and entry fee, it was properly curated and maintained. The museum focused more on natural history and most suitable for primary and early secondary school students.
First museum in Malaysia. Still original building from 1886. Lots of interesting exhibits including a whole floor dedicated to the Orang Asli, and a room about the animals of the region (not recommended if you're sensitive about stuffed animals though). Outside exhibits (various vehicles, an ancient grave, tin dredge bucket etc) can be seen without paying the low entry price (RM5 for foreigners and RM2 for Malaysian IC Card holders, I think).
