Heritage Centre (Badan Warisan)

Our rating:

Housed in a restored 1920s colonial bungalow, Badan Warisan is one of Malaysia’s most worthwhile, and unusual organisations.

In a country where hundreds of historic buildings are demolished every year in the name of progress, Badan Warisan has for years fought a lonely battle to save what built heritage is left.

The centre, including its revamped gift shop, is open every day except Sunday (10:00-17:30; 10 ringgit donation), with guided tours of the Rumah Penghulu, a restored Malay house from Kedah, at 11:00 and 15:00.

The Heritage Centre can be reached on foot easily from KLCC or Bukit Bintang, and can be combined with the nearby Craft Complex.
