The building architecture & design are interesting. However, nothing much contents inside it. Only open the ground floor for visitors. It only takes 10 minutes to take a round

Museum? Or art gallery? They only had a display of some art pieces when I visit this time. Time wasting and not worth a visit. Nice architecture but nothing to offer. A disappointment.

Located at Ipoh, this museum already been renovated to modern new design. Surely, its good place to spend your time and take a picture. Nevertheless, short 15 minutes already enough for you to see all the exhibition.

When we were in Ipoh, the ground floor of the museum was beng used for a temporary exhibition of amateur paintings and as a venue to hand out start numbers for an athletic event. Top floor was a mess.

The museum is on upgrading per March 2015, with almost no signage. However, the building alone is worth to visit, especially for architecture geek.
