Lenggong Archaeological Museum, Perak 2003

The Lenggong Archaeological Museum, also known as the Kota Tampan Archaeological Museum opened in 2003. It exhibits artifacts excavated from the Lenggong Valley but was primarily built to house Perak Man. These photos were taken in 2003.

The museum is located in the Kota Tampan area of Ulu Perak, which is one of the first areas excavated.

Kota Tampan was found to be the earliest human settlement in Malaysia, with finds dating to around 75,000 years old. Since then an older site was found at Bukit Jawa, believed to be around 200,000 years old.

See album of visit to museum in July 2012.
