After my last visit there more than 20 years ago, I was expecting a lot of changes. Somehow, everything still seems to look the same to me.
The ticket is just RM2 per adult. Kids get to go in for free.
Daddy couldn’t resist getting some kacang putih before going in…
One thing that seemed different to me was how small the museum looked to me now. As a kid, the museum seemed very big. Now, I can’t help but feel how small the place feels.
There are 4 galleries: Gallery A – Pre History, Gallery B – Malay Kingdoms, Gallery C – Colonial Era, and Gallery D – Malaysia Today.
There was signage at the entrance showing that no photography was allowed so I did not dare to take out my camera when we were in the Pre History Gallery . When we reached the Malay Kingdoms Gallery, I thought I would just ask the guard if I could take some photos and he said, go ahead and told me to take as many photos as I like! Hhmmm… I wonder what was the no photography signage was for in the first place.
Anyway, I was not going to go back to the Pre History Gallery that we have passed, so I only managed to capture photos from the other 3 galleries.
Here’s the Malay Kingdom Gallery:
The Colonial Era Gallery:
And finally, the Malaysia Today Gallery:
It was a public holiday when we were there that morning but the place was so empty and quiet…..
