While it is free, it is not worth the time. It is small and there is not much to see, even though we love music and play music instruments. Skip.

The place itself is small and doesn't offer much to see. But entrance is free, it's located near the City Gallery and has air condition. So during a hot day you can enter, walk a little around and cool yourself down.

The music was blaring and entrance was free, so I got in. It shows typical musical instruments of Malaysia. Took some pictures and tour was finished in about 7 minutes.
