The building and park-like grounds are exceptionally well restored. (A massive undertaking once you consider the condition this place was in until its recent restoration). The museum, located on two floors of what was once the residence of the Sultan, is well laid out with easy to follow exhibits, following a concise timeline. Several of the exhibits are interactive (virtual 3-D tours inside homes, Malay music, eavesdropping at a cafe during various times in history, etc). A rotating modern art exhibit was being held in the building to the rear - included in the admission fee ($4).
