The Museum is closed for upgrading works, starting from 1 Jun 2016 until 31 May 2017. Very dissapointed on our visit

A lot of archeology information, but less artifact, more like a information center than a museum. No recent progress on archeology site. Unless you purposely came here, this museum locate out of tourist spot, only visited by people pass by to Betong or Kota Bahru and foodie of fresh water seafood.

It is a small museum, full of information of history. A place that must be visited especially students. Many have neglected this part of the country. more publicity and public events should be held to increase the traffic of people to visit this museum.

You will only stop by this place if you're on you way to/from Belum National Park or the border party town of Betong or both. I doubt any tourist will come to this place just of what it is. Which is a shame. This is a Uneaco Heritage site with a museum on it. Can't expect it with other tourists... More

Unlike my visit to most UNESCO inscribed sites, we did not step onto the site itself but to a museum housing the archaeological discoveries. There were a total of 4 sites which were inscribed into the list, with the museum occupying one of those. The museum, a 2-story building, was not difficult to find, being one of the few buildings...

We stopped at the Lenggong Archaeological Museum on our way back to KL from the Belum National Park. Its somewhere we have wanted to visit for a long time, but it was just too far out of the way from KL, so this was an ideal time to visit. Unfortunately, we did not do our research first, so did not... More

The Perak Man, the Bronze materials found during the excavation, the axe aged 1.83 million years, and the ashes from Toba Volcano, all these changed significantly many things about our understanding regarding the Sundaland, the out of Africa migration, the border of Bronze Age and the meteor that hit Lenggong Valley many years ago. I was here with my kids... More

Visited Lenggong Valley this afternoon which is a UNESCO world heritage site with my better half. Lenggong Valley is the place where Perak Man, which is the oldest human skeleton in Malaysia was found. We took about 40 minutes to explore the entire museum but it was kinda surprising that throughout our entire visit there we were no other tourists.More... More

A must visit as it is a recognized by UNESCO. Good for every stage of age. Entering at first makes me feel the "boring" type of museum, however as soon as I enter the upper level, I got emotional as I can see the archaeologist bring the best of them to bring the best of Malaysia to the eye of...

The whole museum (?) was very informative with the photographs and explanations on the excavations, the archaeological sites and video simulation of the Perak man. It is just sad that it does not look like a UNESCO certified place. Could have been better. Im not a historical or archaeology buff but I can see from the videos, interviews and documented... More
