A silent museum. Not many visitors when I went there in March. There are six galleries where one can learn the history of Perlis; the smallest state in Malaysia. The place is clean but not well promoted, I think!

Not bad. Give you a glimpse of the history of Perlis, the smallest state in Malaysia. View is nice as located beside mountain. Not many things to visit or do in Perlis, so should visit this museum to know more about Perlis.

There is not much written about Perlis, but this museum gives you a little glimpse of the history of this tiny state. The place is nicely built amidst Perlis' beautiful paddy fields. If you are in the neighborhood, do drop by.
