14 Seremban : Galeri Diraja Tuanku Ja'afar


This is one of my favourite places in Seremban; Galeri Diraja Tuanku Ja'afar, an interactive royal museum taking us into the history of Negeri Sembilan through the life of the tenth Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia.

Hubs and I were warmly welcomed by upbeat staff ; the museum, although quiet with an air of regalness, is a cheerful place. We had a ton of fun trying out various puzzles on large computer screens which were placed along the gallery.

Exploring Negeri Sembilan via a pair of headphones and a tablet, plunged me into an exciting world of old Malaysia. It almost felt like I was a part of it; like I was there. It was nice to walk through the gallery listening to the pleasant voice of Sarimah Ibrahim narrating the history on each piece of display item.

The gallery is spread across 3-floors. We took the stairs although a lift is provided.

At the end of our adventure, a friendly staff stepped forward to help snap a photo of hubs and me at the entrance. Being horrible at wefies, we were happy and grateful for the assistance.

As we headed to the carpark, we noticed this building with the famed pointed roofs of Negeri Sembilan. It is an olden day architectural design that, to me, is still attractive. The building is currently unused according to the security guard. I wonder if it will be a place for traditional dance performances in future.

Tickets were priced at RM15 per adult when we were there. A little steep, I know but worth the once-in-a-lifetime visit.
