Muzium Gopeng (@muziumgopeng) — A community-based museum that tells visitors about the glory days of Gopeng during the bloom time of its tin mining industry.
Another significant industry that led to Gopeng's founding was rubber plantation . In the old days, half spiral cut was made on rubber tree trunk with a tapping knife. The latex ran along the slope and dripped into a cup. A galvanised steel pail was used to gather the latex collected from tree cups. It was then poured into trays for treatment. After the treated latex coagulated, it was pressed into sheet with a mangle and hung dry.

Glorious years of #gopeng occurred during the `tin rush` era in the mid-1880s. The town located in #perak was vibrant back then, boasted with shop houses, Chinese opera house, opium shop, cinema, places of worship of diverse religions and Chinese clan associations. The bloom lasted until the collapse of tin-mining empire in 1980s. Today, Gopeng is one of the worth-visiting #miningheritage places.
