Nothing here..just dont go..u will waste your time here. Just replica if insect and animal in the museum more »
It is under renovation. It does have some unique ecological and anthropological display not seen elsewhere, including the main National Museum in KL. Hopefully the renovation will bring new life to this aging museum and modernize its display and facilities while keeping some of the unique items.
Only if you like history. Can spend a good hour here just reading about the exhibits
