Malaysia's first fast food museum just opened in Alor Setar, Kedah, where visitors can take a trip down memory lane to see thousands of toy and product collectibles over the years

Tucked away in a shoplot in Belakang Pekan Pumpong is a small museum called Top Fast Food Collections that opened several weeks ago, housing memorabilia from McDonald's outlets all around the world.

The museum has amassed around 70,000 toy and product collectibles over four decades, from the first McDonald's uniform in Malaysia from 1982 to its first menu

Lee Jain Wen and his 62-year-old father, Lee Choon Chiek, told Sinar Harian that they have been collecting McDonald's items from around the world for years. His dad started his collection in 1978 when he was just 17.
 
There are 40,000 McDonald's products in the museum, while another 30,000 items are in their home due to the lack of space.

Twitter user @neyrashazerya paid their museum a visit and shared photos in a recent Twitter thread that has gone viral.

At the museum, you'll find the fast food chain's previous sauce packagings, posters, and figurines from the '70s, among other items that you might recall and even collected growing up

Even the kapcai that was used back in the day for deliveries can be seen sitting just outside the entrance.

All of the items are well-cared for and placed behind glass shelves or in plastic cupboards

Some of them include a limited edition 1982 Coca-Cola can made of steel; the world's first Happy Meal box released in the US; and previous Happy Meal toys like Power Rangers, Hello Kitty, and Snoopy collectibles, among others.

If you're heading to Alor Setar, be sure to drop by this place to enjoy a bit of childhood nostalgia!

Admission fee is RM10 per person.
