  • This is the house of Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaya's first prime minister. Free entrance. A must-visit for history buffs. So more there is an air conditioner in it.

  • Interesting place to visit. Valuable historical relics are illustrated through videos and signage. All materials are well maintained and still in good condition. Good staff and very helpful. Admission is free. There are many places to park cars inside the fence.
  • The home of our first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman. It's opened for visit and free entrance. You can visit this museum if you are visiting Kedah.Located in Alor Star.
  • Rumah Merdeka or Independence House, is one of the residence of the first Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman whenever he returned to Kedah. The place is located behind Hotel Royale and Petron Jalan Putra, you need to enter the compound of Hotel Royale and it is just behind the hotel from the main road. Currently it is closed for repair for an unknown period of time.
  • It is closed until further notice due to damage caused by a flood. Nonetheless, an interesting historical site to see for all Malaysians. Looking forward to being able to visit the inside when it reopens for visitors.
  • Great insights to how our first PM lived.
