Exhibits At The Compound

Within the compound of the museum, you will be able to see the historical structures below.

Ampang Tinggi Palace 

This palace was built during the reign of Yamtuan Udin, the fifth Yang Di-Pertuan Besar at a town known as Ampang Tinggi in Kuala Pilah who reign from 1861 to 1869. The palace dimension is 66.5 feet length by 23.5 feet width. If you observe carefully, you will notice delicate craft works done at the exterior wall of the palace.

You are allowed to go into the palace but take note of the number of visitors allowed each time to ensure that the structure is able to take the weight of the people. Fans are provided to make your visit more comfortable. You will notice that the palace has good ventilation hence it is very much cooler compared to a typical modern brick house.

This structure is over a century old and it attracted so much attention due to the unique craft works that it was brought over to England for exhibition in the year 1994.
