The 10 Best Specialty Museums in Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan

January 14, 2022 Trinity Boughner

The cultural hub of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is visually defined by the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, which, at 88 stories high, are the tallest twin buildings in the world and a vision of modern architecture. On the flip side, the Sri Mahamariamman is the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia, its façade a colorful totem pole of iconography. Shopping at the Central Market is a joyful experience that involves haggling, handicrafts, and happiness.

Excellent displays and information. The only negative comment is that the lighting could be greatly improved which would definitely enhance the displays. Needs to be more widely advertised.

We are not Muslims so we didn't quite know what to expect - but we were soon astounded by the history, the artefacts, the architecture and the mosaical patterns that belong to no other race/religion . The world of Islam stands by itself - it is VERY different from the European Western character we were used to - Islamic art, writings, clothing, rugs, ceremonial weapons, pottery and silverware has an ambience all of its own. There is an entrance fee. The building is air-conditioned, there is a restaurant and there are three floors in a huge complex. Nearby is the National Mosque of Malaysia.

National Textile Museum

Reviewed By SaumSudhir

The museum was a delight! It was extremely well-laid out, with attention to detail and elaborate descriptions of Malaysian textiles and history. We loved the explanations of the process of Batik printing, and the extensive photos of actual Malaysian individuals dressed in the fabrics mentioned. The section on accessories on the upper floor was also lovely. At RM5, the entry was extremely reasonable too!
