    Alor Gajah District Museum

    Located in the midle of the Alor Gajah town, this is the best place to find out more about Alor Gajah's history, particulalrly of the Naning War which saw fierce clashes between the British and the locals over dispute about tax collection and control of the district rich resources.

    There are also sections devoted to local custom, culture and tradition.Main exhibits here include the bridal dais, jewellery and other items of personal adornment, but there are also porcelain items, pictures of outstanding personalities of the district and objects used in traditional ceremonies.

    In the vicinity of the museum are stalls selling souvenier and food, a monument and other recreational facilities.
