"Malaysian History" National Museum - Museum Negara Tip by hennanights


We spent an hour or so at the National Museum. As far as museums go it wasn't the biggest or the best but it was a great way to learn about the Malaysian culture. I especially enjoyed the illustrations of the different faces of Kuala Lumpur. The diagrams showed the characteristics of an ethnic group and its origins. It made me much more away of the people around me. Outside you will find some of the automobiles used in the early days. There is also a stilt house that you can go inside and take a look at how people lived.
