To our surprise, this museum is located next to a petrol station, next to Nasi Kandar restaurant and a supermarket! The authority should relocate it to a more suitable and proper place. It was only a few minutes walk from Grand Kampar Hotel. There’s many old machine used in the mining industry displayed in the museum. Unfortunately, the outdoor area displaying all these are not properly taken care of! Weeds growing in between the machines, some human statues depicting the mining worker were broken but not replaced or fixed. I hope the authority will do something to this place in order to preserve the history for the next generation.

I highly recommend a stop here when you're at Kampar. It's located at Bandar Baru Kampar, next to the Econsave department store. There is no dedicated parking but fret not, you can park outside the museum and walk inside. Being a history buff, I was pleasantly surprised how well maintained the museum is. Entrance tickets are cheap and it is wheelchair friendly. The museum is divided into 2 levels. The ground floor houses exhibits of Malaysia's glorious tin mining days. The second floor houses exhibits of old printing press materials and machinery. All in all, you can easily spend an hour or two here.

We went there in June and it’s our first time to see a lot of the mining apparatus and pictures from the golden mining era. We paid for a guide and were fortunate to have me Jacky Chan guide us (I remember his name as his name is similar to a HK star and also because he is so knowledgeable on the facts and figures and the history). Mr Chan gave us a very detailed tour and shared so much history with us. It was seeing history come alive! My only recommendation is for the museum to be air conditioned as it is very humid inside with just fans. Do spend some time on the museum compound as they have replicas of the different tin mining methods. There is also a koi pond which hou can purchase fish food at a nominal price. The children loved that. I highly recommend this as a family activity which is educational for everyone!
