Muzium Adat Istiadat Diraja Kelantan (Royal Ceremonies Museum)

What we say: 2.5 stars

We aren't too enthusiastic about this museum, but there are some interesting old photos displayed.

All the finery involved in royal weddings can get a bit tedious and redundant, especially if you have already had your daily dose of royalty at Istana Batu.

But for those interested in the romantic side of culture, it's worth a peek. It also displays textiles and the traditional pre and postnatal care for the wee royals. The inattentive staff at the door may help explain why the Royal Ceremonies Museum is one of the least popular of the museums in Kota Bharu.

But considering the Weapon's Museum is right next door, you get a two-for-one, so a real bargain for two ringgit. The building itself dates from 1887.
