State Museum, Seremban

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 splendor 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.
