GET ready for some scary moments as another paranormal exhibition is coming to Kuala Lumpur this month in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007.

The exhibition, entitled Revealing the Mystery of Nature 2007, will be held at Central Market from March 11 to June 10.

It is the sequel to the overwhelmingly successful Mysteries, Genies, Ghosts and Coffins exhibition held in Shah Alam last year.

Jointly organised by Central Market Sdn Bhd and Nurul A'la Collection Museum, the collection aims to encourage the public to show interest in history and its artefacts.

According to Ustaz Safuan Abu Bakar, the owner the exhibits, some of the displays are ancient manuscripts, prehistoric animals and plant fossils, toyol, genie in a bottle, Tongkat Saiful Rijal from Gunung Ledang and historical stones. Other features include the biggest Tongkat Ali found in Asia, as verified by the Guinness Book of Records, and the famed and controversial mermaid found in a neighbouring country, with the upper body of a human with long hair and the tail of a fish.

The previous exhibition drew international interest when it was featured in the news in Canada, Japan and France last year.

The first exhibition attracted more than 200,000 visitors to the Sultan Alam Shah Museum.

The exhibition was also held at Pesta Pulau Pinang in December, and will head to Singapore after the display at Central Market closes.

Admission fee will be RM6 for adults and RM4 for children. The exhibition is open from 10am to midnight.
