Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia (Muzium Kesenian Islam)

Easily the best museum in town

What we say: 4.5 stars

KL has a number of decent museums and art galleries, but the undoubted star of the show is the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia.

The IAMM has more than 7,000 artefacts in its permanent collection, ranging from delicate pieces of jewellery through to large models of mosques. As well as the excellent permanent collection, it also hosts interesting special exhibitions.

One of the biggest pleasures of visiting the museum though has nothing to do with the exhibits. The building itself is a treat for the eyes, especially given the general standard of modern architecture in Malaysia.

And both the museum shop and restaurant are well worth visiting in their own right -- you can stop in at either without a ticket.
