  • We enjoyed the "Home" exhibit with Malaysian artists depicting their homeland. The past and present exhibit on third floor was also well articulated. 
  • Currently there are 3 exhibitions of different themes taking place at the National Visual Arts Gallery until January 2017. The 3 exhibitions are 1MCAT in level 1, Retro Biennale in level 2 and Sage in...  more »
  • It translates into Japan National Museum of fine arts. It is hard to access about 20 minutes over on foot from Chow Kit KL monorail station. And eastward from the titiwangsa terminal station at the crossroads of the Middle Trail well will go a long way. Admission is free. Entry name, etc. were asked at the reception desk. Interior like New York's Guggenheim Museum's spiral staircase. Malaysia modern art history was on display. Confirmed the shooting ban marks every room is better. On the way back from the bus stop in front of no. 402 KL rapt bus in Ampang Citibank prior direct and arrived. Trouble in KL not developed like the Bangkok bus route map, so go to the suburbs.

  • One of my favorite place in KL. I like the ramp design with concept similar to Solomon R. Guggenheim museum.. Although I see most people still prefer using lift. The collections are great. I just wish this place could be more accessible by public transport. And I wish they open the souvenir shop again.. I like the painting postcards.
  • Good efforts in promoting Malaysian Art. But not good enough. But being quiet and not much groundbreaking exhibitions going on lately.
  • Went there on a Morning of Sunday, looks the whole Gallery is just open for my family. I spent 1.5 hours there, there is no other visitors. Surprise. Anyway, good place to visit, quite, clean, free of charge. The full name is National Visual Art Gallery, you can imagine that a Muslim country is not allowed painting image, so the contents are limited. Lots of works are kind of absurd style.
  • Showcasing visual art from local & abroad
  • Good exhibitions here. Place is more accessible by car
