Visited in April 2017. The ticket price is cheap. Have a good grasp of history for those interested in Johor pioneer. Have free fall of water at the 1st storey near toilet. Staff especially Bengala security guard is friendly and helpful. But have to climb the stairs, quite tiring for old people.

Nicely managed 3storey museum. Entrance fee applies. A short introduction of the Chinese immigrants of Malayan , their origins and trade like why certain dialect group dominate certain trade, and also a little on Japan occupation. From this museum exhibit know some interesting things about their neighbor , Singapore. Thus worth a visit !

It is a very interesting place to go to know more not only about Chinese immigrants in Malaysia but also about Johor Baruh's history. If you are interested in history, it is one of the best place to go in Johor Baruh.

Chinese community in Johor Bahru (former name is Iskandar Puteri). While Chinese came to settle in Johor Bahru, the cultures brought to JB by these different people are far more ancient. This aspect of Johor Bahru history is the focus of the Chinese Museum. Museum’s collection includes documents, photos, old coins, porcelain, musical instruments and other artefacts.
