“Not Bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Although the museum might seems old and boring, you actually can learn interesting trivia about cats. Not bad for a free entrance museum.

“Quirky, Slightly Eerie, But Good Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Battled here by public transport, bus and 20 minute walk.

Probably not for you if you don't like cats.

All a bit surreal and looks like it needs a bit of TLC.

Sort of good in a strange sort of way....you'll know what I mean when you get there!

Overall it was worth the trip

“Not so attractive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Not easily accessible via public transport you must take taxi or rent a car to get here you can take bus but must inform driver where to get off then you need to walk uphill about 35 min. It says entrance fee is FREE but if want to take photo must pay RM4.00 well bet most visitor will take photos while inside. All display was covered in glass with lights but notice many lights bulb malfunction but the mgmt didn't replace it and the glass full of finger prints. Many cat statue is the same but put in different location within the exhibition hall.

“Google of Cat”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

despite for being the world one and only cat, it seems like the museum is not properly maintain. A lot of picture posters of cats, and the past mayors of cat city. But it does not have the mummified cat story from Egypts, or any brave cat stories from other corners of the world, only pictures of kissing cats, young girl with cats, and miss the essence of how this cat musuem is conceived. I feel like I am entering the cat section of pet store looking for ideas on how to photograph my cats or buying kitty toys
