The museum outlines the early history of Klang to its present state, with display of ethnographic materials and photographs. It is housed in an 1856 warehouse which belonged to Raja Abdullah bin Raja Jaafar, a royalty who played an important role in the history of early Klang. Today, Gedung Raja Abdullah proudly shelters the Klang Tin Museum, a structure deserving the honour to recount the past history of the once coveted tin. A delightfully informative museum.
You can simply wander in and immerse into the realm of days long gone. The exhibition on tin mining is superb and truly educational. Spend some time there and learn about things you would never have guessed. You will find unexpected gems and trivia. For instance, the first Europeans to soil their hands in tin in Malaya were actually the French!! .
Opening Hours : 10:00am – 6:00pm (Daily).
Closed on Friday.
