INFORMATIONS

The Perak State Museum is a museum located in Taiping, Perak, Malaysia. It is the oldest museum in Malaysia and highlights the history of the state.

The Perak Museum in Taiping is the first and oldest museum in Malaysia. It owes its establishment to the fund-raising efforts of Sir Hugh Low, third British Resident of Perak and Sir Frank Swettenham who was later the Governor of the Straits Settlements. The museum was initially concerned with natural history particularly ethnography, zoology and geology.  While construction of the museum began with renovations to the former government offices in 1883 the main building was only completed in 1886 due to lack of funds. In 1889 extensions to the front and back were added and in 1900 a two-storey extension.
