Galeria Perdana
Galeria Perdana is located in the village of Kilim in the northeastern part of Langkawi Island, about 11 km from Kuah Town. The museum features an impressive collection of gifts given
by foreign governments to Malaysia's former prime minister Dr. Mahatir Mohamad during his term of office (1981 to 2003). The former prime minister believed gifts he received while in office was on behalf of all Malaysians and therefore should be shared. There are more than 2,500 collections on display including paintings, vases, furniture, prototype cars, weaponry, leather craft, musical instruments and fine crystal.
