  • TAIPING 100 YEARS AGO WAS MUCH BETTER THAN TODAY, ESPECIALLY THE ARCHITECTURE...UNFORTUNATELY, THE OLDEST CENTER IS TOO DECADENT. THE MUSEUM IS VERY NICE AS BUILDING, BUT VERY POOR INSIDE WITH A SILLY STYLE MIXTURE: COLORFUL PLASTIC WITH ANCIENT WOOD PATTERN, TOGETHER! (J.B 1841)
  • Very good museum. Tells the story of Perak. Lots of stuffed animals. Beautiful building. Recently restored. Small shop at the back. Worth a visit. MYR5 entrance fee.
