In case you plan a trip to Kuala Lumpur, the National Museum is one of the places you should add to your travel itinerary. Despite not being one of those must-see places, if you have enough time to spend in the capital of Malaysia, the National Museum is a really interesting place to visit.
Located in the heart of the city, near the Lake Gardens, this complex might be the perfect place to relax for a few hours. You will have the chance to admire a lovely scenery and also plunge into Malaysia’s history, geography, art, culture and even economy.
Built on three floors, the complex shelters a few galleries and small museums such as the Gallery of Modern History, the Orang Asli Craft Museum and the Museum of Malay World Ethnology.
From collections of artworks and traditional weapons to stuffed animals and traditional Malacca Baba houses, the museum has a lot to offer. Don’t take my words for granted, just look at the following pictures and decide whether this place is worth visiting or not.
