About Old Malay Archipelago, with world-class artefacts such as 42-minute Discovery Channel about origins of “The Keris" and the Malay Civilisation in South East Asia.
About the Chinese Civilizations with world-class artefacts & videos such as the 60-minute documentary by PBS & sponsored by the Sultan of Brunei, entitled “Sultan’s Lost Treasure”.
Other parts include Voyages of Admiral Zheng He, Baba Nyonya Culture and the famous Song Dynasty scroll, also known as China's Mona Lisa, is called "Along the River During the Qingming Festival". It was done by imperial painter Zhang Zeduan (1085 -1145). The 3D animation (click here to view) , which brought to life the bustling city of possibly Kaifeng (capital of Northern Song Dynasty, 960 -1127), was first unveiled at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. Song Dynasty (960 - 1279) is known to be the most culturally harmonious, artistic and peaceful era in Chinese history. It is also probably the most advanced civilization at that time.
As the ancient Indian civilisations, especially the Indus Civilisation (2500 - 1700 BCE) are amongst the oldest and most advanced in the world, there would be a gallery on these Asian civilisations using artefacts & multimedia.
A proposed gallery of the Rise of Western Colonization starting with Conquest of America by Christopher Columbus, with Spanish/California Mission Bell and other artefacts including about 30 native America artefacts.
To use world-class videos such as 4-minute extract from Hollywood movie “1492, Conquest of Paradise” and 11-minute video about Mission Saint Antonio De Padua in Jolon, California.
Gallery on the "Story of Money", which would include an educational and artistic display of different currencies and their history using more than 500 old Currencies and Coins from around the world.
This will be a gallery made to convey the beauty of Mother Nature as well as the importance of preserving it. This will include a Crystal Cave using more than 300 large, medium and small pieces of geological crystals, with ID lights and sounds to showcase its beauty and refraction.
We have reasons to believe that many artefacts in our collection might have come from the notorious pirate king Limahong (Deputy a Japanese) with 4,000 men under his command at his peak. They used to pillage the villages of Eastern China. On the run from the Ming Emperor Wanli who wanted all their heads, Limahong and his men tried to conquer the Philippines in 1574 to make himself the new king there. But he and his men were repelled by the Spanish Forces in 1575 who had just arrived at the Philippines earlier.
Limahong might have left behind many of his artefacts in the forests and caves of the Philippines. More than 420 years later, they might have been found and might have made their way to Malaysia and were legally acquired in 2010.
A gallery for World Peace using at least 10 selected popular anti-war music videos and decorating the gallery with disabled weapons of war. Using the power of good music and multimedia to bring out the effects and impacts of wars, peace, love and humanitarianism.
And another interactive multimedia gallery would be about Climate Change, other threats such as local air and water pollution & the Need to Protect the Environment.
Against diseases, illnesses and pandemics. Promotion of healthy lifestyle, exercises, good nutrition and clean drinking water.
Gallery on the importance of Holistic Education on producing the right CONTENTS, using the right DELIVERY PLATFORM to children and promotion of the RIGHT VALUES & PRINCIPLES from young
“Flying Fish Wreck” Gallery, with more than 6,000 extremely rare artefacts of the Northern Song Era (960-1127), to be curated by 2 leading experts, Dr Michael Flecker and Dr Tai Yew Seng, who also helped to legally excavate this shipwreck off the coast of Sabah in 2017.
