What we say: 4 stars

Kota Bharu's War Museum houses quite a selection of World War II memorabilia and is well worth a stop for those with an interest in the period.

The building itself started life as the Mercantile Bank of India and later (1941-1945) was used as a lock up and interrogation centre by the Japanese Intelligence Police.

Considering Kelantan was the invasion point of the Japanese military forces, the exhibits are authentic and artefacts are in superb condition.Even non-historians will find a visit here to be of considerable interest.
