  • If you want to know the history of Malaysia, it is recommended to visit the Royal Palace Museum. I'm interested in the royal family and it was a good time.

  • Paid access (10RM) for a sad and uninteresting visit! No reception, pieces visible only from the doorstep, making the visit quick and uninteresting: everything can be seen from afar... and again. Very decevant and an indenifiable waste of time. Avoid if you have little time to spend at KL.

  • Nice place to learn about the life of royals. How were very limited viewing experience. All the rooms have brokers placed so you have to crank your neck to look in. A lot if the rooms were closed which was kind of disappointing. Air conditioning wasn't working in some places
  • Many areas are blocked/restricted... so tour only certain parts of ground & 1st floor. .Good to go & view when you are passing by; not worth to purposely go for a visit..&.don't expect grand architecture/furnishing like overseas palace.
