IPOH – The Sultan Azlan Shah Gallery in Kuala Kangsar has been closed for visits to make way for conservation and upgrading works.

The announcement was made by the Perak State Museum Board through a post on their official Facebook page around 1.00 pm today.

The gallery is expected to reopen for visits in 2025, as stated in the announcement.

This means that visitors will have to wait for another two years to visit the gallery.

The gallery serves as an excellent platform for the public to gain a deeper understanding of a sovereign King and enhance the people’s comprehension and appreciation of the Constitutional Monarchy Institution.

The same notice was also displayed on the Perak State Museum Board’s website.

Earlier, Ipoh Echo reported the disappointment of a family from Jasin, Melaka, who travelled to Kuala Kangsar to visit the Sultan Azlan Shah Gallery only to find it closed.

The family was willing to drive 400 kilometres to visit Kuala Kangsar and Ipoh as part of their school holiday vacation, attracted by the historical attractions and interesting places.

The head of the family, known as Shah Ahmad, said he was not aware that the Sultan Azlan Shah Gallery was still closed and not open to visitors.

He mentioned that he only discovered the closure upon arrival when he attempted to purchase tickets and was informed by the staff that the gallery had been temporarily closed for the past five years.

He also checked the Perak State Museum Board’s Facebook page but found no notice stating that the gallery was still closed.
