Last week, we made a quick visit to Taiping for our first ever Ching Ming to Mommy’s great great parents in Taiping.
Before we leave Taiping, we took a quick spin in Taiping Museum.
Before we went in, “Are you sure there are things to see inside?”
Well, every town has some history, and it depends on how you preserve that history and show it out. So, I must say, Taiping town council did a great job with his Museum.
This is an old train carriage. Jay & Kay’s grandpa (mommy’s dad) sit in one of these before.
It is amazing to see an old train. So, Jay wanted to touch it.
He even wanted to take photo with it. Soon, the security guard’s whistle blowing. HaHaHa
Perak is one of the first state to get a railway. Probably because of the tin it produced.
Next is the steam engine.
Of course, made in England.
Of course, first thing the boys notice is this “Fire Box”. I don’t even know this is called a fire box where you put coal into the firebox and the fire inside boils the water to produce steam.
Conquer the fear, touch the snake. Ah Gong took photo with the snake in front of the statue.
Kay Kay also wanted to touch it.
Without fear. This is a snake. The kids loves it.
The famous 28 wheels bicycle. Jay Jay is just happy to see such a long bicycle.
Next let’s check out the skeletons.
Is this elephant or dinosaurs?
A long Payton and a crocodile.
What kind of fish is this?
The museum has two floors, and it is fully air con. It is quite impressive.
It has more stuff to see here. The kids also learning lots of cultures stuff from there.
This is one huge 毽子.
Then, the second floor are the pre-historic time artefacts.
A dragon sculpture. Malaysia got dragon? Hmmm….
Not too bad, the museum in different era.
The museum visit is cool.
