National Museum (Muzium Negara)
History and culture seen through the prism of race
What we say:
The main building of the National Museum is split into four main rooms, moving from pre-history to modern times.
In that journey, it shifts steadily from being an informative experience, to being a propaganda vehicle for Malay nationalism.
The grounds of the museum contain a random collection of moderately diverting exhibits, including a steam locomotive, and a Malay Sultan's palace.
Despite being located right next to KL Sentral, getting to the National Museum is a real pain by public transport - unless you fancy a death-defying dash over a six-lane highway, that is.
