I simply love the visit to this museum. Even though it is very small but the exhibits are very enchanting. This museum can be visited when you enter Tropical Spice Garden, it is included in part of the tour that you can do yourself. Enjoy the serene atmosphere amidst the greenery. For a moment, you are in paradise *sigh*
