MUSEUMS IN KUALA LUMPUR

1. MUZIUM NEGARA

This is the National Museum of Malaysia. The museum was completed in 1963 on the site of another museum that was destroyed during World War II. All historical items, including written scripts and artefacts, are displayed here. The design of the National Museum building was created by architect, Ho Kok Hoe and it is based on the style of the Malay Kings’ palaces and the local Malay community. It is the first government structure to include traditional Malay architectural elements in its design. Currently going on in October are DIY Penanda Buku, Pameran Undi untuk Negara and Pameran Dunia Naga: Mitos & Lagenda.

2.MUZIUM TELEKOM

The Telekom Museum, also known as Muzium Telekom, Telekomuzium, and Muzium Telekomunikasi Negara, chronicles Malaysian telecommunications history from the 1870s to the present. The Telekom Museum is a stunning old colonial structure that would have been demolished in 1985 but Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamed, the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia decided to keep it as a historic structure, and it became a museum in 1994. There are two distinct faces to the structure. The facade facing Jalan Gereja has eight classic Greek or Roman style columns, whereas the façade facing Jalan Raja Chulan is almost entirely central European and includes an archway leading into the central courtyard. From the air, the building is said to resemble the letter G, but I’m not sure what that means.

3.MUZIUM BANK NEGARA MALAYSIA

The four floors of the museum are home to the roomy, light-filled galleries. This gallery examines Malaysia’s economic development since Independence and it describes the Pocket Money Book initiative, which aims to teach kids how to budget, manage their daily expenses, and encourage saving (something which is not easy to do these days with savings interest rates being so low and unattractive.) The museum offers visitors access to more than three galleries which hosts specialized exhibitions from time to time. Volunteers are most welcome to be part of this museum.

4.MUZIUM TEKSTIL

The National Textile Museum presents the history, evolution, and production of primarily Malaysian textiles and its contribution to Malaysian history. Built in 1905, it is located across Merdeka Square. Before it was a museum, the Federated Malay States Railways’ administrative offices were housed in its Mughal-style structure which was designed by AB Hubback.  It only became a museum in October 2007. The museum is divided into Four galleries—Pohon Budi, Pelangi, Teluk Berantai, and Ratna Sari—that display a selection of renowned textiles, clothes and accessories from the various periods in Malaysian history.
