Definitely for tourists only, this tiny museum is actually a Malaysian house showing how a typical Malaysian family lives.

Walked down the river and passed this by chance - absolutely wonderful to see the traditional houses. This area is of course the upmarket version - still very worth to stop by when you stroll down the river!

The idea of opening your home to any person (tourist or not) is amazing. The current occupant speaks English well and explains the various sections and paraphernalia. All for no entry fee but expects a donation. Not many will do this.

Subpar and poorly run setup and must be some Malay govt venture. Poor to non existent information. I wouldnt waste my time on this place.

Went with my family and was greeted by the friendly and knowledgeable owner of the house Mr Ibrahim. He explained to us on how the village came about and the history of his family.

An authentic visit around a traditional Malay house. We were welcomed in by a fantastic man named Ibrahim who showed us around his own home and all of his families treasures. This was no tourist tour or company making money. This was a genuine family...More
