Muzium Seni Kraf Orang Asli

The Orang Asli Craft Museum, also known as Muzium Seni Kraf Orang Asli, showcases the rich heritage of Orang Asli crafts in Peninsular Malaysia, with a special focus on the artistic traditions of the Mah Meri tribe.

The crafts displayed here reflect the Orang Asli way of life, covering their cultures, beliefs, myths, legends, and meanings. Inside the museum’s collection, you’ll discover 156 ethnological artefacts in total, which include beautifully carved figurines and masks.

These unique creations have earned recognition from organisations like UNESCO and others, both regionally and locally. The museum is divided into eight sections, each offering a glimpse into different aspects of this rich culture:

  • Introduction
  • Figurine and Mask Carvings
  • Customs Related to Death in the Orang Asli Community
  • Hunting and Fishing Equipment
  • Musical Instruments
  • Wardrobe and Accessories
  • Weaving Products

Located near the National Museum, visitors have various transportation options to reach this museum. You can opt for a taxi, the KL HOP-ON HOP-OFF bus, or make use of alternative modes of transportation readily available at KL Sentral Station, such as the Commuter, Putra LRT, and Monorail.

The Orang Asli Craft Museum is a must-see for anyone who wants to learn more about the indigenous people of Malaysia and their fascinating art forms.

Visiting hours are as follows: open from 9 AM to 6 PM daily. Closed for the first day of Hari Raya celebrations. Entrance fees are RM2 for adults, and kids below 12 years old are free. Here’s the Google Maps link to the museum. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness their creativity and craftsmanship up close. We also visited the other two museums in the vicinity.
