Taiping Museum

Date:  Apr 1, 2013

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.
