Cute little ‘building’ but it is unorganized inside. Still, a good place to visit if you happen to pass by Gopeng or have a meal in Gopeng. It is always nice to learn some history about Malaysian towns.

Hi, I believe it is not daily. For the museum, only from Fridays to Tuesdays and the Heritage House is on Sats & Sun only. Might be prudent to check as this was the last information I had .... Enjoy.
