What to Expect?

The collection has been curated by See Kok Shan, a Cameron Highlander with a passion for collecting artefacts from the early days of Cameron Highlands itself.

The museum opened in 2007, in a warehouse adjacent to a strawberry farm on the main road on the outskirts of Brinchang.

Time Tunnel describes itself as a journey back in time, and those who are middle aged or above will recognise familiar items from their younger days.

There are two exhibition levels in Time Tunnel. Hop up a short flight of steps and you'd find yourself along a narrow ledge with exhibits on the floor, on tables and on shelves at eye-level.

"This is one of the most popular sections, especially with old aunties," says See, chuckling as he recalls how an old woman, mesmerised and lost in her own memories of when she was a child herself, just stood there for the longest time. This is the kitchen section with a display of an old makeshift stove as well as charcoal stoves, kerosene stoves, charcoal iron, grinding stones, old tiffin carriers and meat-safes with wire-netting on the doors.
"Visitors, especially those aged 50 and above, are thrilled to see all these things from their childhood," says See. "notice that Singaporeans in particular, love the place and theyd bring their children and grandchildren and point out to them all the exhibits."


The museum was established in January 2007. Since then, it has continued to grow at a measured pace. Situated at the basement of Kok Lim Strawberry Farm, the split-level unit occupies a passageway that stretches for more than 80 meters. There are more than 4,000 objects and photographs on display here. They are showcased in eight galleries covering an area of approximately 14,000 square feet.


Aborigine Section
This area captures the lifestyle of the resort's natives (Orang Asli). Their tools, traps and handicrafts are exhibited on the floor and on the walls.

'Barber Shop'
The 'barber shop' is equipped with mirrors, straight razors, scissors, hair sprays, shavers, hair dryers, clippers, curlers and a broad range of combs. The walls are plastered with posters that were once used to promote barbering. The showpiece of this "shop" is the barber chair. It is more than 50 years old.

Children’s Corner
This space is filled with blackboards, school uniforms, furniture, counting aids and a variety of toys. Nearby is a cabinet that displays memorabilia like fountain pens, erasers, pencil sharpeners, rulers, textbooks and school badges.

‘Coffee Shop’
Resembling an old eatery (’kopi tiam’), this setup comes complete with a cashier's counter, stools, tables, mirrors, ashtrays, matchboxes, chopsticks, spittoons, coffee cups and a collection of soft drinks. The drinks here are not for sale.

Photo Gallery
The museum is known for its assortment of old photographs. It has an inventory of more than 1,000 images.

    The time tunnel is a good place for kids to learn on history, love the displays, brought back childhood memories. They had photography taken for visitors, a little racist the owner, they choose people based on whether they can pay or not for a picture, I would have bought one if they approached me for a family portrait. That was the downside. If they are taking pictures they should take pictures of every visitors. Bad marketing

    This place is wholesome for people who loves antique concept and the place is so nicely done with the old look. The equipments used in wars just mind blowing and really cool for parents to teach their childrens about old living style. Ticket is so cheap (RM6), THIS IS A MUST GO PLACE.

    Nostalgia to a certain extent. Saw some of the damages from 2018 fire, but fairly decent use of the salvaged displays. Despite that, wish they make new additions to the display items if they intend to continue to awe younger visitors. Nothing much added since the last decade I've gone there. Also some of the things are in dire need for a good restoration work.
