Muzium Negara ( National Museum )

Selangor Museum was standing proud until it was destroyed by a bomb on World War II. Six years after Malaysia declared independence, they decided to rebuild a museum on the same site. It was then Muzium Negara ( National Museum ) became a reality and officially opened on 31st of August 1963. So much of history, let’s get inside!

TIPS & REVIEW: This is a huge museum with 4 galleries. It’s not a place where you just turn around and you’re done, so get ready with some walking and take your sweet time. Silence is golden inside the museum. If you want to be enlightened about the rich history and culture of Malaysia, this is a must-see place. Coffee shops inside. Their pantry serves Malaysian menus. The admission fee is at reasonable price.

  1. Bonsoir
    Je viens chez toi comme par magie
    J’adore venir voir les nouveautés sur ton blog
    A mon tour
    Je vais essayer de faire rêver
    Dans ce rêve
    Tu y trouveras ma douceur
    Tu y trouveras du bonheur
    Tu te trouveras dans mon petit monde
    De la joie et du partage
    Même si ce n’est qu’un petit rêve
    Il y aura quelques instants sur ton visage un sourire
    Qui te permettra de réchauffer une partie de ton cœur
    Gros bisous , Bernard

      I come to you like magic
      I love coming to see what’s new on your blog

      I’ll try to dream
      In the dream
      You’ll find my sweetness
      You’ll find happiness
      Thou sit in my little world
      Joy and sharing
      Although this is just a little dream

      There will be a moment a smile on your face
      Which enables you to heat a part of your heart
      Big kisses Bernard”
