Much smaller and more compact than we expected but a pleasurable and interesting diversion, even if only for an hour. The gift shop actually had some of the best souvenirs we saw in all of Malaysia. Very good location. Lots of people getting their pics in front of the I💜KL sculpture outside
Being a KL person I have never actually take it upon myself to learn about its history. The time taken to explore this gallery took about an hour +, not too long. But it's enough for me to understand how this city came about. I'm quite glad I made the trip.
If you like city models, you'll be delighted - there are few, largest with 5000 buildings. Galery is small, but it gives good view of rapidly developing city, which was a village less than 200 years ago. Considering the low price, it's definitely worth it. Excellent, free city tours starts here at 9 am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, highly recommended.
there's a tour guide for large group will explain everything in the gallery. the most attractive section is in a dark room with mock-up building of KL and video played on background. as you buy entrance ticket you will get some discount if you wanna buy souvenir there.
Pretty cool place if you want to start your tourist visit in Kuala Lampur. You get an idea of all the tourist stops, by guided or self tour. It has a cool show as well for a few minutes, showcasing the present history of Malaysia. Most on the buildings and the infrastructure. Also this place has free WiFi so check on the route to where you want to go next. Download or upload pictures to your loved ones as well.
Crowded with tourists but a nice place to have a look at the history of this city. Simplified Chinese, English, and Malay are all presented in all exhibits here. Even locals find it interesting to look back at the old historical pictures here and to be reminded of the past, like the floods once this city had. It has a city model which may be even more beautiful than the Singaporean one, even though the overall exhibition are not comparable to it. You cannot see much deep information of city planning here, but it's a good place to look around and taking pictures.
It's a small museum. The light show tells about the city's history, the historical buildings, city's geography and development. By paying a small entry fee, you can tour the whole building with photo sites, souvenir shops, small cafe. The gallery staffs are very friendly and informative. There are various free tourist information brochures.
A small place with a good cafe, hip souvenir store and a nice photo studios. The place focuses on the architectural developments of Kuala Lumpur and you can take pictures 3d walls and mini buildings which are kuala lumpur's skyscrapers. The cafe serves good food and I enjoyed sitting down and eating while observing tourists. The coffee is good and not expensive. The place is accessible via taxi and grab and also bus and near the city and the malls so you can visit this in the afternoon and then have dinner or snack inside the gallery.
Pretty impressive show in the second floor. RM 10 for the entrance. If you're interested in the history of Malaysia, specifically the founding of KL this is the place you can start from. First floor has a souvenir shop along with workshop and a small dessert store.
Very nice employees here. A lot of tours come through here so hopefully it’s not too busy when you go. The light show was nice, but the miniature city was very impressive Look to only spend around 30 or so minutes here
This is a good place to visit and learn about KL City’s past, present and future. Entrance is just RM10 and well worth. You can take lots of pictures including the I LOVE KL sign. Your visit to this gallery will be complete with Merdeka square and surrounding historical places.
Very nice colorful place. Inside have many information about the city and country. Inside have small shopping and food court. Also can see ppl working in a small workshop. Got many 3d art and structures for photo lovers. Overall good environment. Must visit place for foreigners.
Very funny place with plenty of interactive booth and exhibition items, for example Kuala Lumpur 3D painting for photography. The KL city light show is one of the most outstanding museum interactive show I have ever experienced. Before you leave the gallery, make sure to visit the cake shop as they have Malaysia's top ranking Durian cake to taste if you are Durian lover.
Very accommodating employees. Lots of tourists from different countries visits the place. Souvenir items are also available in sidestreets. A must place to visit if you are planning to have a vacation in Kuala Lumpur.
