Coffin and Funeral Exhibition


Coffin and Funeral Exhibition - Visit Perak Year 2012In conjunction with Visit Perak Year 2012, Museum Darul Ridzuan is organising a Coffin and Funeral Exhibition. The exhibition is being held for two months from December 21, 2011 to February 29, 2012. The exhibits include funeral rites of all the major religions around the world including that of Jews. Brief descriptions are given on the ceremonies being done however the English version was full of grammatical errors.

The exhibition was launched by Dato’ Zainol Fadzi bin Haji Paharudin, Exco for Culture. The opening hours are from 9.30 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. daily. The entrance fee is RM3 for adults and RM1 for students. It is free for senior citizens above 60 years old, children under 6 years and disabled persons.

The general comment was that the timing of an exhibition on this topic is not appropriate during the festive season of Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year.
