Sungai Lembing Museum

Sungai Lembing Museum

The Sungai Lembing Museum was built as a repository to treasures related to the tin ore mining industry in Pahang. It is located at one of the world’s oldest and largest tin ore mining site. The site is managed by the Pahang Museum Department.

The museum’s exhibits include tin ore equipment and the attire worn by former mine workers. In addition, the architecture of the museum along with its furniture and interior decoration was inspired by the colonial or early colonial period. The building also has tunnels or underground mines but they are not open to ordinary visitors due to security reasons.
