"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Crystal House at Sg Lembing 15 October 2010
Direction - From Sg Lembing museum, go straight. When there is a fork road, take the left one.
It is opened by a former miner, Mr. Lee at his own home. He charges a mere RM2 for adult and RM1 for child. It is such an educational visit on mining related information. Mr Lee will share his 23 years work experience unselfishly. Just ask him questions.
Left- Which one is tin? Right- Some of the crystal being displayed.
Left- a replica of a tin mining tunnels, dug by Mr Lee which took 4-5 months. Right - Mr. Lee, who wasn't wearing a shirt, which he claimed related to his mining job where the temperature was fiery hot.
Left- Another replica - which took him a year to make. Right-a tool to drill a hole for dynamite insertion.
