Orang Asli Museum (Muzium Orang Asli)

A glimpse of an amazing story of survival

What we say: 3.5 stars

They are the poorest, least healthy, worst educated, most marginalised community in the whole country. Their story is a fascinating one, but you will only get a sanitised version of it at the government-run Orang Asli Museum.

The best part of the museum is the black and white photos; the worst part is the complete lack of information about the Orang Asli's desperate struggle to hold onto their traditional way of life.

It's located about 25km from central KL -- the last stop on Rapid KL bus U12 from Chow Kit.

As a final word, please do not go on tours which involve visits to Orang Asli villages; they are people, not zoo exhibits.
