  • 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!
