No Islamic stone left unturned

What we say: 3 stars

Built in 1902, the Muzium Islam was initially the residence of the chief minister.

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.
