Acclaimed as the largest museum in South East Asia, the Terengganu State Museum Complex houses century old artefacts and artworks of rich and colourful heritage.

Located on 27 hectares of land in Bukit Losong, Kuala Terengganu, the complexes itself are an impressive architectural feat, based on the designs of Terengganu's old palace.

It comprises a Main Museum, a Maritime Museum, a Fisheries Museum, four traditional houses and botanic and herb gardens.

The Main Museum is built on 16 concrete stilts with galleries showcasing textiles and weaving techniques, traditional weapons, crafts, historical, royal regalias, nature, petroleum development, Islamic arts, new generation and contemporary arts.

The other four blocks are adjoined, to represent a large family. At the main entrance of the main complex, lays the famous original Batu Bersurat of Terengganu.

Visitors from hotels may contact any of the local travel agencies to arrange for a fun Kuala Terengganu Town Tour which includes a visit to the State Museum. Or take the traditional boat cruise along the Terengganu River that also stops at the State Museum.

For those wishing to drive to the Museum, they have to take the route to Kampung Losong which is famous for its keropok lekor, a famous local delicacy. From there one can see the majestic looking museum, on top of Bukit Losong.
