Darul Ridzuan Museum

The Perak Museum was built in 1926 by a rich and successful tin miner called Foo Choong Kit. Back then, he built it for his own private domain and it was told that once forty people were counted to be living in this house. The house did not stay long with the family. In 1950 it was sold to the Perak Government which utilized these premises to house the administrative centre of its Department of Works. It was not until 1992 that this building finally graduated to become a museum. Visitor can browse through the museum and learn about the early history of Perak. Here, visitor will be introduced to the many characters that molded the state. Find out who Hugh Low was and what Swettenham achieved or whether Clarke made any difference in his policies. There are plenty of pictures of British administrators and rulers who played enormously significant role in the building of Perak and Malaya
