Ever wondered how it would feel to step back in time and relive some of the idyllic memories from years gone by? The museum gives a brief history of Malaysia and Ipoh and has an impressive collection of various trinkets from the 50's and onwards.

What to Expect?

If you wish to take walk down the memory lane, add the Time Tunnel Ipoh Old Town museum to your next travel itinerary in Ipoh, and you can do just that.

The museum in Jalan Panglima allows visitors to revisit memories of their childhood, via a collection of unique everyday items dating back over seven decades.

Curated by See Kok Shan, the museum is a “sister property” of the Cameron Highlands Time Tunnel.

The museum mainly displays collections of items from 60's to 80's, it vows to take you back in time as you make your first step into the establishment. The space was well used with every corner having something to look at.

Devices from decades past — a rotary dial telephone, an analogue cash register, two Rediffusion boxes, a barber’s chair with Old Spice and Brylcreem accessories — dot each corner of the museum.

There are also collections of personal items such as family photographs, report cards, bus tickets, and even drivers’ licences.

Of course, there are sections dedicated to the history of Malaysia and Ipoh, as well as wartime items that were found during the Japanese Occupation of Malaya.

Our favorite part of the space is however, a reconstruction of a kopitiam, which is breathtaking in its detail. Old Coca-Cola, Orange Crush and Fanta bottles and classic designs of Milo and Planta tins line the shelves, as well as vintage teapots and tea sets.

The ground floor is free to visit & RM5/ entrance at first floor. On the ground floor there is a shop selling handicraft.

    Privately-owned. 5* for d collection. 2nd storey is d museum. Ground floor sells wood crafts n furniture. RM 8/pax to enter. Walking in to buy ticket on ground floor. Free to roam. It's a great place for parents/ grandparents to tell stories to children.

    More suited for older kids as d museum is rather dim (natural lighting). Wooden floor planks so everyone is expected to walk slowly n quietly.

    My experience with Ipoh ? station is beyond my expectations compare to Padang Besar station to Hatyai. The waiting is so small and combines both arrival and departure hall. At a glance you can both exit too. Air ventilation is so bad. Luckily we have slightly faster e-train service but is not frequent enough. Cannot compare service punctuality because there's no train schedule.

    The snacks & beverage they are selling, the foreigners will not buy. The established cafe is outside the train station which is a 50m walk away. I doubt you wouldn't feel comfortable being your waiting hall there too.

    March 2023:

    Ground floor is free for viewing. Mainly wood crafts and some handcrafted souvenirs at the Ground floor. Upper floors will have to pay for a fee of RM8/adult, RM4/ child. There were not so many visitors during a hot Monday afternoon.

    The collection was not too bad, but the atmosphere/environment was hot and humid at the upper levels. They didn't turn on the air cond and the fans at the upper level. The environment made you want to leave the place ASAP.

    TBH, it was not a very pleasant visit although the lady PIC there was friendly.
