Our Sahabat Media Cuti-cuti 1Malaysia trip had a brief stop at the museum when we visited Pontian on the first day.
The museum had a collection of artifacts, exhibits, publications and information pertaining to the pineapple industry in the country. Housing all these, it worthwhile to pay a visit to Muzium Nanas Johor if you are interested to learn about pineapple and its industry.
The museum is divided into five sections beginning with the history of Malaysia pineapple growing, Introduction to Pineapple Farming, Agronomy and the process of how pineapple are canned. Outdoor the museum also planted 18 varieties of pineapple comprising of fresh varieties, canning varieties and ornamental pineapple varieties where visitors can view the different fruit characterization and other varietal differences.
Some of the exhibits at Muzium Nanas
During our visit we saw a demonstration of how pineapple yarn are extracted from the pineapple leaves.
While being briefed about Muzium Nanas we we were treated to Ais Krim Malaysia with pineapple flavor. Ais Krim Malaysia was made popular since the 60s.
After a hot day what is more refreshing than a cool "Ais Krim Malaysia" with pineapple flavour. Our stopover at the museum ends our Pineapple Trail for the day.
