  • Beautiful art gallery. With a variety of themes after every few months. Interesting artwork and souvenirs to buy, also if you're lucky enough there are book launched happening every now and then. Which you can attend free of cost and meet amazing writers. The staff is friendly and helpful. And the gallery's infrastructure is also a piece of art. A must visit in KL
  • Pretty neat space. Small but well managed. Also, free of admission! When I was there, the venue also hosted a theme 'We could have been young', displaying some series photographs that I found very intriguing. There was also a talk with the photographers, which I think pretty interesting. Some decent space to sit on the 3rd floor, also check out decent cafe and souvenirs shop on the upper floor. Staff are also friendly, including the security guards. Well done Ilham.
