Our long term goal is to produce an exhibition centre which can be used for serious research by students as well as general entertainment for both local people and visitors to Ipoh wherever they may come from.
These will focus on specific aspects of local life and provide an in depth insight as to how different it used to be. Loan of relevant artifacts to build these exhibitions, from individuals, local organizations or institutions, will be more than welcome and all who assist will be credited by name in the exhibition.
Our Pilot Exhibition Programme
IpohWorld’s first exhibition took place in the Darul Ridzuan Museum, Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. The ground floor was lent to ipohWorld by Perak State Government free of charge. They also upgraded the lighting and décor and made all the arrangements for the Grand Opening by Y.A.B. Dato' Seri DiRaja Mohd Tajol Rosli Ghazali. The Directors of Ipoh World Sdn Bhd are most grateful for their assistance.
The exhibition was entitled "The Story of Ipoh, From Feet to Flight" and featured the growth of Ipoh from around 1870 to the present day, through the medium of transportation. It was presented by Ipoh World Sdn Bhd in cooperation with the Perak State Government and opened on 16 January 2006 for one month.
The exhibition was an unprecedented success with more than 12,000 visitors attending with 917 arriving on the last day. Of course this could not have been achieved without financial sponsorship and the organisers are indebted to:
Kinta Properties Group
And to all those supporters who lent photographs, artifacts and their stories to the designers. Without them there would have been no exhibition.
