The state museum is a "must" item for local history lovers. Located within the grounds of the Cultural Handicraft
Complex, it is actually an old wooden palace which has been reassembled for public viewing. Built entirely of
wood, this palace which has seen greater days of royal spiendor at its old site at Kampung Ampang Tinggi, houses
various old and historical artifacts which will interest those with a keen eye for local history, like weapons
as well as brass and silverware. Also on display is a tableau portraying a grand royal wedding.
Situated next to the state museum is the "Rumah Minang", depicting an actual Minangkabau house. Also found at the
Complex grounds are the megaliths from Fort Kempas.
