Muzium Darul Ridzuan

Darul Ridzuan Museum

So the afternoon when I went to check out the snake girl (gadis ular), I naturally took photos of the museum. Isn’t it a shame that although I live in Ipoh, I have never visited this museum before? I never found the occasion to until the Beauty & the Hisss Exhibition.

As mentioned, this is Darul Ridzuan Museum, not to be confused with Perak Musuem, which is actually in Taiping. This one is along Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab, just next to Pejabat Setiausaha Kerajaan Perak (SUK).

The building itself is a piece of “Perak history” as it was built in 1926 by a wealthy tin miner in Ipoh. Imagine, there are eight bed rooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs and on the adjacent building, there are four bedrooms for staff of the household. All in all, the buildings and garden occupy four acres of land. After all these years, the colonial style mansion is still well-preserved.
