We went based on the reviews on trip advise and are so glad we did. The grounds contain interesting historical items and the museum itself is well organised and provides a fascinating insight into current and historically policing. And the whole experience is free. The nearby Park is also worth a visit.

I found the museum very interesting as it charted the history of... More

We were heading towards KL bird park and saw this place on the way. Free entry and virtually empty except for a group of very young cadets from Malaysia. The museum attendant must have been bored as he decided to give us a guided tour himself, while the cadets were simply interested in us as English tourists. Fascinating museum and... More

Free entrance so can't go wrong! Friendly staff and good lay out and is very informative. Learnt a lot about recent Malaysian history, including the emergency, and they even have a couple of tanks and a big boat outside! Considering it's free and close to the other attractions (national mosque, Islamic arts centre, national museum and planetarium) might as well... More

Small museum, not very interesting at all. On the bright side, its very quiet, parking is not a problem and is near (walking distance) the cience museum, the islamic arts museum and the Malaysian space agency.

Visited the museum and have to say it is very well presented and maintained and easy to follow. The displays were one of the best I have seen and better than the London tower displays of their military units and far superior to the Scottish and Victorian (Australia) police museums. The officers on duty were friendly and helpful. I would... More

Nice if you're interested in police history. Free entrance. Located a little bit outside the city, you can go to the museum with a touristbus free of chargé.
