Terengganu National Museum

Well worth a visit

What we say: 4.5 stars

Don't be put off by the odd display of cars out front; this is an excellent and well worth visiting attraction. Terengganu National Museum has a number of buildings and exhibits, the most obvious of which is the main exhibition hall -- an enormous concrete model of a traditional Malay house. Within you'll find comprehensive displays ranging from decorative kris and fabrics through to old korans and beautiful jewellery. What you won't find (or we couldn't anyway) is much dedicated to Malaysia's history before the arrival of Islam.

While theoretically the museum can be reached by public bus, the service is so unreliable we suggest getting a taxi which should cost 12 ringgit or thereabouts. Allow at least two to three hours to take in the full range of attractions.

Admission is 10 ringgit for foreigners and no photography is permitted within the exhibition halls.
