National Museum

The National Museum of Malaysia is a celebrated cultural and historical institution in the city of Kuala Lumpur. The organization boasts a huge collection of artefacts and memorabilia from all over the Malay Peninsula, some of which date back to the earliest days of human history. The museum is located in the Colonial District near the National Monument, known locally as “Tugu Negara,” which honours fallen Malaysian soldiers from past conflicts. One can also find many other important landmarks and points of interest in this neighbourhood like Merdeka Square, City Hall, and St. Mary's Cathedral.

  • Browse temporary exhibitions related to the natural history of Kuala Lumpur and the rest of the peninsula through chronological displays covering the Stone, Iron, and Bronze Ages through the Hindu-Buddhist and Muslim eras in the National Museum Galleries.
  • Enjoy family-friendly learning activities targeted towards Kuala Lumpur youth, like arts and crafts, mini-archaeological digs, and cultural demonstrations in the Space Exploration galleries.
  • Admire beautiful outdoor displays on the National Museum grounds, such as the 19th century Terengganu palace Istana Satu, an early 20th century British steam locomotive, and an antique Melaka Bullock Cart.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport is 57 kilometres from the National Museum, and one can use the KL Sentral ERl-EX train from the Main Terminal, Airport Coach or Omnibus services, or the Star Shuttle as economical transport to the city. Taxis are usually the most expensive option, and visitors should only use the official airport taxis for which tickets are sold at the Airport Limo kiosks inside the terminal. Getting to the National Museum and elsewhere in the city is easy since there are several types of trains, like the KLIA Sentral, Kommuter, Monorail trains, and the LRT high speed rails.
