Opened on 18th Aug 1992, the museum is located in Jalan Panglima,
Bukit Gantang Wahab, Ipoh. The collections here include a history
of Ipoh's expansion and development, the mining industry and forestry
in the state of Perak. The museum building has its own remarkable
history. It was built more than 100 years ago.
The building was used as the residence of Malay dignitaries in
the Kinta District. When the British Administration took over the
building, the British built several fortresses as war shelters around
the building. One of them was opened to visitors.
The Museum Darul Ridzuan is open daily from 9am to 5pm except on
Thursday when it is open for half a day and is closed on Sundays.
Entrance is free.
