What we say: 3 stars

In 1917 it became the official office of the Islamic Religious and Malay Culture and Ceremony Department, eventually being turned into the Islamic Museum in 1991.

There is quite a collection of religious artefacts as well as an abundance of Islamic information. The well-organised displays and photos leave no stone unturned and even touch on prehistoric man, complete with a reproduction of Southeast Asia's oldest Palaeolithic human skeleton, Perak Man.
