Currently, the theme of the exhibition is mammals of Malaysia with special emphasis on endanger animals that are rarely seen nowadays except in the zoo. The mammals that are on displayed have been preserved and look very much like the live animals. There are some write-up on these animals hence this place is a good place to gain some educational knowledge especially students who are in primary or secondary schools.
