    This small museum about the history of Malaysia is oké. It's worth to visit when you're around. It will give you a nice cooling down after spending a hole day in the park.

    Well-organized exhibits present the history of Malaysia from prehistoric geology, to colonial era politics, up to Merdeka and beyond. The choice of visuals reveal much about its national self-image.

    If you're foreigners, that's worth it. For Malaysian, I don't really think it worth the visit. Not like old times which now looks rather dull. Museum suppose to be fun and very interesting. Sorry.

    Not really that recommend especially for Arabic people and those who already had a look at any of the Arabic and Islamic museums. Same traditional Islamic history and stuff.

    A bit dull, to be honest. Could learn more from reading Wikipedia. One quarter of the museum was under renovation when I visited. It seemed very small compared to other national museums I have seen.

    They have refurbished the place with better exhibits comparable to the museums overseas. One must take a photo of the centre court from above. Very nice floor pattern.

    The museum houses various exhibits depicting the historical background of the country. The exhibits are on a rotation basis, so it is best to check out the museum on their exhibits at the time.

    I'm not talking about what's inside, but just at the entrance of the National Museum, you'll find SegKL where one can participate in a guided tour around Lake Gardens for an hour on a Segway.
