Museums in Kuala Lumpur

Start here
There are quite a number of museums in Kuala Lumpur nowadays. Gone are the days when the only museum in town is the National Museum. Over the years, new museums have been established, both by the government as well as the private sector, for specialized subjects and fields. Often, items that were originally displayed at the National Museum were relocated to specialty museums.

On this page are the museums in Kuala Lumpur that I have been able to describe. I will add to this list from time to time.
