The museum itself is huge and grand. However less prominent exhibition as it is a state museum. A good time to spend and stroll around for a minimum fee.

Wonderful place and very the classic architecture. Inside, you can learn about the state's history, people, industries, arts and cultures, etc. Good place to start off your tour around Terengganu.

Probably Malaysia's biggest museum, the state museum is composed of several structures built in the traditional Terengganu architecture. Inside, you can learn about the state's history, people, industries, arts and cultures, etc. Good place to start off your tour around Terengganu.

This is not a museum, should be called gallery for fabrics and paintings... Very poor historical displays, cannot imaging the waste of space, this is a huge building but inside is empty. Very bad narration and poorly run. Skip this if you can and just...More

There are not much places to visit on Kuala Terangannu other than this Museum and Crystal mosque. Museum was huge and the display was good. Not worth visiting if you are here for short term.

Most exhibitions were in malay and english. They had an interesting part about fabrics from different parts of the area. The part about woodworks was also interesting. Their exhibition about prehistoric time was disappointing.
