Archeology Museum Bujang Valley (Museum Arkeologi Lembah Bujang) that sits on Batu Pahat Hill was officially opened by His Royal Highness, The Sultan of Kedah 23rd January 1980. This museum is the first archeology museum built in Malaysia, under the Museum and Antiquity Department.

Bujang Valley was the oldest centre of international and entrepot trade for Malaysia. The numerous artefacts uncovered in the Bujang Valley -celedon, porcelain, stoneware, clay, pottery, fragments of glass, beads and Persian ceramics – are some proofs that support the observation.
