  • Just next to Merdeka Square. Airconditioned gallery. You can read the history of Kuala Lumpur. They have miniature klcc tower and buildings in Kuala Lumpur.  more »
  • We came to the opening in 9 am, since that time, begin to conduct tours in English. But we passed on the galleries themselves, watched video of Kuala Lumpur and a model city. On the second floor there are a few fotozon, in the morning to get them much easier than at rush hour. This is a ticket 10 ringgit, while you give a voucher for 5 ringgit, which you can spend in the gift shop on the ground floor. U turn in the Gallery of faces famous red letters I ♥ KL, photographed with them at any time.

  • We spent about an hour in the gallery. First to discover the early history of the city (1st room) to discover the future of the city (floor). But also take pictures of models, reconstructions and 3D sets offered. History of having cool photos with the KL skyline. The visit is nice and easy to follow. Don't miss the I love KL leaving, the famous red letters ;)

  • If you like city models, you'll be delighted - there are few, largest with 5000 buildings. Galery is small, but it gives good view of rapidly developing city, which was a village less than 200 years ago. Considering the low price, it's definitely worth it. Excellent, free city tours starts here at 9 am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, highly recommended.
  • Pretty cool place if you want to start your tourist visit in Kuala Lampur. You get an idea of all the tourist stops, by guided or self tour. It has a cool show as well for a few minutes, showcasing the present history of Malaysia. Most on the buildings and the infrastructure. Also this place has free WiFi so check on the route to where you want to go next. Download or upload pictures to your loved ones as well.
  • there's a tour guide for large group will explain everything in the gallery. the most attractive section is in a dark room with mock-up building of KL and video played on background. as you buy entrance ticket you will get some discount if you wanna buy souvenir there.
  • A Must visit place for a Traveller.. Can be aware of lots of visiting places that are available near KL which are not even mentioned in Google.. They charge 5RM to look around the gallery Which depects KL heritage and nice stuff to take pictures
  • One of the best place to visit! Entrance fee is RM 10 per person , but they will give you a cash voucher worth RM 5, which you can use before you leave at the cafe or souvenir. The huge signage of "I ♥ KL" shouldn't be miss!
