About
Ipoh World (IpohWorld) is an education-based, not-for-profit organisation established in 2004 to promote awareness and appreciation of Perak, the Silver State of Malaysia and its unique, diverse and rich heritage, with particular focus on Ipoh and the Kinta Valley. In 2006 we ran our first public exhibition "The Story of Ipoh: From Feet to Flight", in cooperation with Darul Ridzuan Museum. Since then, supported by sponsorship, we have run several more exhibitions while continuing to seek further financial support for a permanent, lively and interesting heritage gallery for Ipoh, thus enhancing both education and tourism. This current project, our first permanent, museum quality exhibition is our first step to fulfilling this objective. Advance booking is recommended as space in the building is limited. You may book via our website by clicking on Exhibitions or by the QR Code on our brochure. It is quick and easy and you receive a booking confirmation by return.

Insightful and informative
Dec 2020
The tour guide is knowledgeable and had many information to share with regards to the rich history of Ipoh and the origins on the Han Chin Pet Soo building. The muzeum is well preserve and kept. You can still see many of the original building structure and decorations.

The tour is around 60-90 minutes with deep and elaborate explanation by the guide. You will be guided to see all the muzeum displays and artifacts with the tour guide explaining to you all the stories and the history behinds those stuff you see.

Recommend to all who want to learn more about Ipoh history and the Hakka immigrants

A must-visit place in Ipoh
Dec 2020 • Couples
It was really informative visit and amazing experience in this historical museum. The tour guide is very enthusiastic in explaining the history of Ipoh and the Miner club as well as the life of Hakka people (one of the Chinese subgroup in Malaysia). I have learned so so much for that one hour trip. I would tell my friend that it is a must to visit to this place when travel to Ipoh.

The museum is run by a non-profit organization and the admission is free, therefore, I would strongly recommend that visitors to donate a small amount of money to keep this unique museum continues to operate. Lastly, a huge thanks to Ipoh World in preserving the history of this beautiful city.

Another heritage well preserved.
Dec 2020
It is interesting to note and be reminded the contributions from the past generations of immigrants who put in blood and tears to earn a basic livelihoods while inevitably left behind their impact to the local economy and community. The museum is well preserved and in this 3-storey shoplot, one will learn much about tin, Hakkas and Ipoh.

This was the highlight of our Ipoh day trip. A little gem of an effort to preserve history and let the public appreciate the past as lived by the Tin mining magnates of Perak.
Well done Ipoh world!
