Learn about history of Ipoh
If you are one of the visitors who wish to learn about the local history, then the Darul Ridzuan Museum is waiting you at Jalan Panglima, Bukit Gantang Wahab with free entrance.
After you've visited the museum, you should have known about the history of Ipoh's expansion and development, the mining industry and also the forestry.
Although the museum was opened on 18th Aug 1992, it was actually reaching 100 years old. So, you see, the museum itself is a piece of history collection.
Originally, the building was occupied by Malay dignitaries in the Kinta District. But then, the British took over the building after they conquered the state of Perak and furnished it with a few fortresses around the building as war shelters.
Nowadays, they have become a memory of the war and you can admire the architecture art of the fortresses by visiting one of them.
