At the heart of Alor Setar, there’s a beautiful wooden building, the local named it as the Royal Museum building.
Tracing back the history, the Kedah Royal Museum was a former palace built in 1739. It has been burnt down, rebuilt, and renovated several times over years. It is the oldest Royal Museum in our country, a very memorable building for the people. In the museum, they display a lot of stories, explanation and life time memories of the royal family, including our first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, who was also the prince of Kedah royal family.
The interior was entirely wooden made, the outside is painted in yellow, a representative color of Royal family. Photographs and video is not allowed in the museum. You will only be able to take photo from outside. Once you walk in you must take off your shoe as a sign of respect to the Royal Family.
