This was formerly a bank. Later during the Japanese Occupation it was used by the Japenese Army/Navy and is not the War Museum with inside and outside exhibitions. There are 5 Museums in the vicinity that can all be visited the same time.

War museum is in Bank Kerapu. Ground floor and outdoor exhibition. Upstairs, a collection of old items and some pictures and stories of local events. Boring to some, informative to others.

A very ‘text’ heavy museum, exhibits are mainly posters detailing the history of Kelantan pre and post WW2. If you’re up to a spot of reading this is a great way to get a crash course in Kelantan history, there are also some war relics...More
