Taman Mini Malaysia

Cultural Centre

in Ayer Keroh

This open-air museum exhibits traditional houses from all 13 Malaysian states. Visitors can tiptoe through a long-roofed fishing house from Perlis and peruse rice-pounding equipment from Langkawi at numerous re-creations across the site. It's family-focused and a little twee, but the houses are beautifully decorated with plenty of explanations about local traditions, foods and languages. Cultural shows are also staged.
