A good place to know our ex prime minister deeply. However, one of the gallery is closed due to poor maintainance work. A bit hot in the house (no air-cond). Overall, it's worth to visit

A big family living in a simple house, this is where Mahathir was born and grown up, he could use the available sources to build up a great personality.

An old house idolized just because he was the 22 years long PM of Malaysia. Waste of time to go and no other activities in the vicinity. Better to stay in hotel and relax.
