  • There are lots of museums here, like textiles and music. There is a huge square which is lovely for resting in as it has a lovely green area. We got the signature I love KL City picture whilst here as well. Worth a visit if you are in the area or returning from the Batu Caves as a stop off.
  • One of the better city museums I've been too; there's a cover charge but they give you a coupon for the same amount for use in the café / gift shop so entrance is essentially free. Does a great job of explaining both the history of Kuala Lumpur and some of Malaysia, as well as highlights some contemporary art, culture and other projects throughout the city. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area. Walk to the Petaling Street Flea Market from there to get a good feel for the city.
  • It is a place that you must go and take a photo in front of the giant sign "I ❤️KL". Besides that inside you learn how the city is growing and more about their history. The souvenir shop sells beautiful wooden souvenirs, so beautiful.
  • Absolutely astonishing presentation. They have made a smalls scale prototype of the whole city, and explaining the past present and 5 to 10 years projection of the future over this, with a simple but elegent movie presentation. You will feel the KL inside more deeply. This is my third time in this city but i never felt that way about the city. It is a must go. And there is a high quality souvenir shop in downstairs as well. Youbsre paying 5 ringgit and you are using this inside shop to redeem your money. Perfect! Must visit.
  • Free tour was pretty good, and gets you in places you'd normally have to pay for. I think it's worth checking out if you're in KL. They also have a fancy miniature 'diorama' with buildings that show the current and future growth of KL.
