  • It's a very nice place to stay in August, so it's easy to find the south side of Merdeca Square, which is very hectic because it's a huge crowd of Chinese tourists and the surrounding area is under construction.

  • Nice place to visit. With 'miniatur' of Kuala Lumpur inside, picture of diversity in Malaysia and instagramable spot, this place is really good to visit. So Recomended.  more »
  • Definitely worth a visit. If you are even lucky enough to be there between the removal of tourists from coaches, you can enjoy the museum. Many possibilities for photo motifs. Also the show, what is planned for KL or the numbers, data, facts I found interesting.

  • Awesome galley depicting KL city history past, present and future. The best part is the entry is free. There are lots of miniature models of iconic places of KL city. There is 10 min show depicting the current KL city statistics and features which is mind blowing. Also the cafe has lots of tasty durian menu options. Iconic I ❤️ KL is also outside this gallery.
  • A great place to visit if you’re in the area. You can get to understand KL a bit more. There’s some basic information about the city and its culture on the first floor. Some interesting spots for photo shooting on the second floor. Also, it’s nice to have an air-conditioned place to go after you visited the nearby historic architectures under the heat. Most importantly, there’s no entry fee!
  • I love the installations! Especially the KL history! The history is quite short for KL given here. But other than that, it is quite enjoyable for me. Take too long taking pic on the iconic I love KL and ended up just enjoying the inside
  • Kuala Lumpur City Gallery # Wonderful place to visit along with kids. Special show is available about #Malaysia is wonderful one not to be missed here. Great maintenance and lovely ambience. I Love KL. No wonder why Malaysia is one of the best place to visit as a tourist.
  • Pretty cool! For free Great installation of the buildings of the city. A lot of information about the past. Very cool artwork ! Reasonable prices in the cafe and cool souvenirs. Go there :)
