  • Pretty neat antique collection. I like the accessories collection they have. The furniture arrangement can be improve. Some items looks dusty which doesn't look appealing although I understand is a history museum. They allow phototaking and interaction with the object. Overall, is still a good museum. RM19 for adult and RM15 for students.
  • The entrance fee included tour guide service. Wendy is very knowledgeable, friendly and homorous. All the lady staffs are friendly. We learned not only straits Chinese jewellery, but also Baba Nyoya culture, tradition, history and more. Photography is allowed.
