National Museum (National Museum, Muzium Negara or Jalan Damasara) can be called the most important museum Malaysia. It is dedicated to the history of the country since ancient times, as well as its achievements in the modern world. The four halls of the museum are dedicated to different eras, and it is recommended to inspect them sequentially. Sometimes thematic exhibitions and shows are held in the open air next to the museum, where everyone is invited for free.
If you really choose any one museum to visit from attractions in Kuala Lumpur then we would recommend visiting this one. However, do not expect from him the scale of the Hermitage: compared even with some provincial Russian museums, the National Museum of Malaysia looks rather modest. You can see everything here in 30-60 minutes, although it is worth noting that the entrance fee is symbolic.
🕐 Working hours: daily from 09:00 to 18:00. A free guided group in English and French is available every day except Sunday at 10:00.
💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: 5 ringgit-adult; 3 ringgit-child (6-12 years); up to 6 years free.
🚶 How to get there: getting to the National Museum using public transport is not easy, since the nearest metro station KL Sentral is about a kilometer away, and you have to walk along an intricate multi-level Road-interchange (National Museum on the map). Another option is to drive directly to the museum on the free tourist bus on the red line GO KL.
