They gather all the local craft here in a well organised compound. Starting with batik making, silver craft, oil painting and many more. Besides, there are some food stalls selling local cakes and local cuisine.

There is a very small museum, probably need only 15 minutes to see everything. I personally find the batik painting store more interesting. It is located at ground floor. You can learn batik painting with RM10 charge only!

We bought two keris daggers made on the premises and some additional ikat fabric. Seeing how some of the products are manufactured is really a great experience and well worth the visit. And of course you can buy your souvenirs right there too.

This place didn't have a particularly varied display of local crafts. A couple of silver places that were a bit run down, an art shop with not much in the way of local paintings. Not worth the visit from our perspective.

A few stalls selling low quality tourist tat and a small museum which charges you double if you are a 'foreigner'. Spent about 5 minutes here and then left.

The building itself is quite impressive and well maintained. 👍👍 i came here to try out the famous nasi nearby. The building itself is quite impressive and well maintained. You can find different kinds of interesting souveniers. It can get very hot during lunch hour.
