Air conditioned museum for a hot humid day. If you have no interest in cats, you will not like the museum. It is literally all about cats! Entry is free. If you would like to take photos with your phone or camera it costs you. It's RM 3 for phone use.

Ser the title: that's what it is. Even cat food on display. Fun when you have an hour left, costs about 50 ringit for a van ride from the city centre and back

Unusuall museum is placed in the city hall, far from the city center. If you are not really a cat lover it is not worth to come... The exibition is a bit kitchy with strange items and mostly photographs...

This is one very unique museum to visit. It has a lot of objects facts and everything to do with cats. The collection of cat memorabilia are particularly interesting. A small entry fee plus extra if you want to take photo with your camera (or phones). Outside of the building, you can take in the panoramic view of the city,... More

My cousin and I visited the cat museum. It's not central to the city so we used Uber to get to and from the museum. Entry was free but if you wanted to take photos you had to pay for that. The museum has everything about cats that you can imagine - from stuffed cats through to kitty litter. Was... More

Quite a collection of cat inspired articles. Also displayed local cat idioms and general cat facts. I am a dog person, but was quite impressed with the effort. Some of the pictures on display need to be improved - not well cropped and images were either 'squashed' or 'pulled' out of shape - I would be ashamed to have these... More
