Kota Tinggi Museum
Designed to showcase and commemorate the glory of the Johor Sultanate which began after the fall of the ancient Malacca Empire to the Portuguese in 1511, construction of the Kota Tinggi Museum began in 1997, and it was open to the public in 2002.
Kota Tinggi was chosen as the location for its historical significance as the seat of the Old Johor Kingdom.
It was also here in the Johor River Valley that the celebrated writer Tun Sri Lanang, wrote ‘Sejarah Melayu’, the greatest text to embody the lineage and tales of the Malay rulers.
A walk through the two-building complex will bring you across time as you peruse its collection of rare ancient artefacts dating from the 16th century until today, including centuries old pottery, large canvas paintings, ancient musical instruments and the weapons which once symbolised the might and strength of Old Johor.
