Nicely managed 3storey museum. Entrance fee applies. A short introduction of the Chinese immigrants of Malayan , their origins and trade like why certain dialect group dominate certain trade, and also a little on Japan occupation. From this museum exhibit know some interesting things about their neighbor , Singapore. Thus worth a visit !

It is a very interesting place to go to know more not only about Chinese immigrants in Malaysia but also about Johor Baruh's history. If you are interested in history, it is one of the best place to go in Johor Baruh.

I was a little skeptical about the museum visit but happy to say I was wrong. I found the museum fascinating and enjoyed learning about the Chinese Singaporeans history. Do yourself a favour a check it out.

Chinese community in Johor Bahru (former name is Iskandar Puteri). While Chinese came to settle in Johor Bahru, the cultures brought to JB by these different people are far more ancient. This aspect of Johor Bahru history is the focus of the Chinese Museum. Museum’s collection includes documents, photos, old coins, porcelain, musical instruments and other artefacts.

To understand Singapore and its heritage this is a must. You are transported back to see how the first settlers arrived, why they arrived and how they lived. Take your time to soak it all up. A real joy.

I visited Chinese heritage in August 2016. As a foreigner, it was not interesting at all. I expected to see lots of Chinese status of gods and also cultural things to help me knowing more about Chinese people. I thought I can try some Chinese instruments and know about the application of them. But, I visited a small museum about... More

Know nothing about the history of Chinese immigration to Singapore before this, and to be honest was taken here by my spouse under protest, this is a fantastic place to visit. Informative displays laid out in a very interesting way are complemented by a free audio guide. Would highly recommend.
