1. Muar Murals
Especially make it a point to see the “The Loving Sisters” by Russian artist, Julia Volchkova. You might have seen her other gorgeous works in Penang!
And the 3D ferry mural or Mural Penambang Feri – which is what it sounds like!
There are also 2 large murals (by 4 different artists) on Komplex Legenda including
“Root of the World’s Furniture” – a tribute to the Muar furniture industry.
See the Bangsa Johor Mural at Taman Sri Tanjung, Muar. This is a mural on the Tanjung Emas clock tower which portrays racial unity in Malaysia.

So you can stroll among the dinosaurs at your leisure.
6. Muar Clock Tower
