National Museum

Brochure 1 | Brochure 2


Located in the heart of the city of Kuala Lumpur, the National Museum (Muzium Negara) built in the style of a Malay palace is the guardian of the nation’s history. The recently upgraded galleries present an exciting and innovative approach to exploring the history of Malaysia from prehistoric times to the present. Muzium Negara was officially opened by His Majesty, the Third Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Syed Putra Al-Haj Ibni Al-Marhum Syed Hassan Jamalullail on 31st August 1963. The museum building, apart from being stimulative from the point of tradition also presents a panoramic view of the development of Malaysia, as depicted by the two large murals of Italian glass mosaic, which extend across the museum facade. Muzium Negara is a repository of Malaysia's rich cultural and historical heritage. The three storied structure is 109.7 meters long, 15.1 meters wide and 37.6 meters at the central point. The museum houses four exhibition galleries featuring Malaysia's history and rich cultural diversity. Muzium Negara endeavours through its collections, exhibitions, research, publications, educational and public programmes, to inspire a broader understanding of our nation and her multiracial people.
