My visit is based on the most recent visit. As of now, it is still under renovation so they have opened a temporary gallery. You can probably finish viewing this in 10 minutes. Most of the exhibits just consists of static pictures. A little underwhelming.

The maintenance of this museum is so-so but the exhibits and explanations provide a picture of Malaysia during the aborigines' era. It houses the Perak man which is more than 11,000 olds fossil of a short man with Negro DNA. It is worth the visit.

The museum hosts the most complete old skeleton found in South East Asia ~ Perak man (approx 11,000 years ago). Not much people knew that the original skeleton was moved back to this museum from National Museum in Kuala Lumpur. It is worth the trip to travel to Lenggong to visit this main attraction of the museum.

Not too much visitors even we visited during school holiday, I guess paleolithic Archeology is not mainstream attraction in this country. I hope the museum can come out interactive programme or animation to explain various type of stone tool usage, the life of caveman during paleolithic period. With that, visitors can related to usage of those stone artifacts better rather than thinking they are just different type/shape of stone displayed. Also, I am thinking if they have a workshop to demonstrate how those stone tools are created or teach visitors to make use of stone tool for cutting or sharpening, it will be very interesting.

The signage of museum needs to be improved. We accidentally found that one of Kota Tampan Archeology site at the back of the museum when we go to the restroom. Also, we got to know that visit to those Unesco Archeology caves are possible by applying permit from museum curator. Specific date and time to explore those caves will be provided once permit approved. For anyone that interested should apply the permit ahead by calling the museum and arrange the museum visit together with cave exploration.

Nice history, nice place, clean area. Advise all to go there to know more about Perak Man, who is first man of Perak. No fee for entrance.

Lenggong archeological museum houses the Perak Man's skeleton which is 10000 years old. It is a unesco site. This valley is very old and a must visit. Archeology museum entry is free. There is a rock garden just behind this. It is a must visit. You can also visit Old caves after you take written permission from the director of archaeology department.

The renovation has been completed and it looks clean & comfort with air conditioning system. If you keen on ancient history, then you may find this place interested. One of the main attraction is the 11,000 years of skeleton call 'Perak Man'. The freshwater seafood at Lenggong Town is recommended.

Visited in January 2019. The museum is now open after extensive renovations. Easy location to find using Google Maps, about 1hr+ drive from Ipoh. The museum is well laid out and air-conditioned. Allocate around an hour to make the most of the informative posters, videos and displays of stone age exhibits.

The highlight (and reason for the visit) was to see the skeleton of "Perak Man", the oldest complete human skeleton in South East Asia. Our kids (9yrs and 11yrs) were very impressed, as were we!

To my disappointment, the museum is still closed for renovation. I have been there before the renovation took place. I love how they placed the artifacts and history in a timeframe manners. But the looks was kind of outdated. It did need a renovation.
hopefully it will open soon.
