National Art Gallery (Balai Seni Lukis Negara)

Don't judge an art gallery by its cover

What we say: 4 stars

The building may look like it's falling to pieces from the outside, but the quality of the artwork on the inside is anything but shoddy.

As well as a permanent display of modern Malaysian art, the gallery also puts on regular special exhibitions. The gallery is open 09:00-17:00 every day, and admission is free.

The only real negative about the National Art Gallery is that it's so difficult to get to by public transport. A walk from the nearest LRT (Titiwangsa) station involves dangerous highway crossings. The best option is to take a taxi: better still combine it with a visit to Titiwangsa Lake Gardens.
