The Terengganu State Museum Complex consists of a Main Museum, a Maritime Museum, a Fisheries Museum, 4 traditional houses and botanic and herbs gardens. The Main Museum is built on 16 stilts, in accordance with the traditional architecture of Terengganu. Its 4 blocks are adjoined, to represent a big family. There are 11 galleries showcasing textiles, crafts, historical, royal, nature, art, petroleum, Islamic, new generation and contemporary arts.

The museum was officially opened by the late Sultan of Terengganu Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah on April 20, 1996.

Bukit Losong where the museum is located has quite an interesting background. It is "the place" for the local people and outsiders seeking delicious 'keropok lekor'. Read about it in this article by Azura Abas.
