Rm2 for adults and Rm1 for seniors but do note that the walk from ticket booth to muzium is quite steep which might be challenging for senior citizen to walk.

Small museum, touring done in an hour. Affordable ticket, just parking on the outside, need to walk quite a bit.

Rm2 for adult, rm1 for those 55 and older. Beautiful location on top of the hill, though folks with mobility challenges may find it difficult. Visitor parking is at bottom of hill.
