  • 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
