Petronas Art Gallery (Galeri Petronas)

Our rating:

After the National Gallery, this is the best place to see contemporary art in KL.

As well as offering a showcase for Malaysian and international artists, Galeri Petronas (10:00-18:00, Tues-Sun; free admission) also runs a wide range of educational programmes to boost the understanding and appreciation of art.

Owned and managed by Petronas, the cash-rich national oil company, the gallery is also a major buyer of contemporary art, as well a sponsor of local artists.

The convenient location in Suria KLCC is another factor in its favour. The only problem is with the website, which seems to have a permanent problem. For the latest information, it’s best to access the Facebook page.
