A Malaysian would find this museum more interesting.
Feb 2020
The Literature Museum is a museum inside the Stadthuys Museum complex and one of the museums that’s free to visit as part of the entrance to the latter museum. I was expecting a general history of literature, but this museum is really about the literature of Malaysia. The museum is lovingly kept with lots of information and exhibits of many notable Malaysian authors. Therein lies the problem. Unless you have an interest in Malaysia literature, nothing here is likely to be of interest.

I’m giving this a low review score because the subject matter did not interest me and it’s not a reflection on the quality of the content. A Malaysian would find this museum more interesting.

Pretty unintersting

Even though I love reading and literature, I got very little from this museum. There are just books within glass cases, and a couple paragraphs mostly about the authors of said books.

The bit on news was a bit more interesting, but overall the museum didn't really seem worth visiting.

Perhaps some exerts from the books, or more information on the books themselves would have made this more interesting.

Perhaps a Malaysian national would find more value in this, but it doesn't hold much apeal for a foreign tourist, even one who loves literature.

Worth going to as it's included in the price for entering the The Stadthuys museum complex. I presume more meaningful to locals who knew most of the authors but it was very interesting all the same.

Not as good as the others

We paid 10 MYR per adult to enter to this museum and a selection of others (I think 5, but may have had access to more than this that we didn't visit).

When we came to actually see this museum we turned up at 12pm, only to be told they shut between 12pm to 3pm.

Just panels to read

Small museum in a nice historic house. Entrance is included in the ticket for History and Ethnography Museum.
Unfortunately the building is packed with information boards and very few objects. The content about Malaysia literature and writers is comprehensive. So I guess literature enthusiasts may appreciate.
