  • Interesting museum, very informative and a lot of artifacts. It’s free so no reason not to visit! All descriptions offered in English which was helpful as a tourist.
  • Very beautiful palace (it is a muzium now but still maintain the status of a palace).It is also free!!! Lots of information, photos, artifacts of the Kedah Royal family. Please visit this palace if you are in Alor Star. Located in the same area as Masjid Zahir, the Balai Seni, Menara Nobat. I was there on 9th December in the morning and this lady security who politely ask us to sign the guestbook was very2 nice and she gave us a lot of info about the Kedah Royal Family. The muzium should put her in Baju Kurung Kedah and apppoint her as a guide instead of security.
