Villa Sentosa is one of the weirdest museum we have ever been to. Why? Because it is a living museum, means people still live in this building! It is supposed to show the real, everyday life of traditional Malay family. The idea is great but it is still a little bit awkward to come to someone's house just like this, right?
There are many unique furnishings, very good, but also can see the surrounding local people's life in a variety of places.
Santosa Villa is a life museum. The article on the wall of the house introduces the history of the house. The family still lives here. The host is an old sister. When visiting, he provides us with tea and traditional cakes. At the same time, he tells us the history of the family.
