While Muzium Kraftangan doesn’t hold a candle to the glory of the other museums in Kota Bharu, but for the price of entry it’s worth popping in to help support their efforts.

The village itself has some souvenirs for sale and you might take a break here to grab an ice cream, but doesn’t offer too much of interest otherwise.
