  • I didn't go inside, but it's just around the place, so please take a picture in front of the object. Not only famous, but also this object, i.e., is said to have a very impact, I think it's quite good. I'm sure it will be one of the commemorative photos. When I went there, there were a lot of group tours from China.

  • We approached there because in theory there was a guided walking tour of the Merdeka Square area, according to the official website. It turned out that for some time there was no guided tour, and the tourist information they offered there was limited to giving you a map and little else. It is not worth getting there on purpose, unless you want to visit Merdeka Square.

  • Awesome galley depicting KL city history past, present and future. The best part is the entry is free. There are lots of miniature models of iconic places of KL city. There is 10 min show depicting the current KL city statistics and features which is mind blowing. Also the cafe has lots of tasty durian menu options. Iconic I ❤️ KL is also outside this gallery.
  • A great place to visit if you’re in the area. You can get to understand KL a bit more. There’s some basic information about the city and its culture on the first floor. Some interesting spots for photo shooting on the second floor. Also, it’s nice to have an air-conditioned place to go after you visited the nearby historic architectures under the heat. Most importantly, there’s no entry fee!
