1. Dark Mansion (Malaysia)
The inside of this museum looks like a rave party, and it’s pretty fitting for its theme. What you’ll get out of this is that you’re essentially visiting a 3D glow in the dark museum. That means seeing awesome light effects, and trippy illusions that make you feel like you’re in another world where 2D images get transformed to 3D ones.
For those who love content #forthegram, every corner of this museum is a good photo opp, so get your phones at the ready. The museum is fun for the whole family, unless one of you is scared of the dark then well…
2. Kota Batu Archaeological Park (Brunei)
This park is a Bruneian national heritage, and it’s an archaeological site that is said to aid investigations on the country’s history from the 14th to the 17th Century, so that’s pretty impressive in itself. No, there aren’t any dinosaurs, but many things have been uncovered in this site, and here, visitors can see pottery and architecture that have survived more than 700 years.
If you’re into archaeology, you’d definitely appreciate seeing all the excavation sites. If you’re not a fan, the park is only a stone’s throw away from the Brunei Museum, and the Brunei Darussalam Maritime Museum. You can even find the “Royal Mausoleum” nearby where several Bruneian sultans and their family members are buried.
3. War Remnants Museum (Vietnam)
This museum is dedicated entirely to the First Indochina War and the Vietnam War. During your visit, you can find exhibits depicting the propaganda being pushed at the time, along with documents, artifacts, and anything related to that period of Vietnam’s history. There are even authentic military weapons and aircraft from that period, including the distinctive F-5A fighter at its main entrance.
This one is for the history buffs and military enthusiasts. That being said, this is a war museum, and there will be disturbing images and exhibits that can be very graphic, so visitor discretion is advised.
4. Taman Prasasti Museum (Indonesia)
This museum used to be a cemetery where many Dutch colonials were buried. As such, you’ll see many intricate tombstones with classical and neo-gothic styles, including angels and weeping statues. The cemetery was inaugurated in 1795, but it was discontinued as a cemetery in 1974, and has since become the museum it is today.
The bodies of the deceased were either given back to their families, or re-buried in a public cemetery, so you don’t need to worry too much about that. The museum is a quiet little place that showcases architecture of the colonial period, so if you’re a fan of art and history, consider paying this place a visit.
5. Siriraj Medical Museum (Thailand)
Warning: This museum isn’t for everyone. If you’re squeamish, it’s best you skip this one. For those who don’t mind something a little more on the disturbing side, this one might be for you. As the name would suggest, you’re going to see many medical-related exhibits, such as preserved babies, parasites, human organs in jars, skulls from murder victims, and it once uh… displayed the mummified body of a notorious serial killer in Thailand.
Again, this museum isn’t for everyone! The museum consists of seven smaller medical museums dedicated to specific fields, so there’s lots to explore here, especially if you’re a medical student.
6. Singapore Musical Box Museum (Singapore)
This museum celebrates the history and significance of musical boxes. Consisting of more than 40 antique musical boxes from countries like Switzerland and Germany, the museum lets you pause and really appreciate the art of the music box, and you can see the boxes in action as they play out their own songs.
You don’t even need to like musical boxes to appreciate the precise craftsmanship that went into making these centuries-old musical boxes, which at one point in history, only belonged to the elite. What’s best is that they have detailed tours, so you’re going to come out of this museum a smarter person.
