Without a doubt, the official uniform for "Fe-male Police Officers" in Malaysia is HOT. It reminded me of what Grace Jones was wearing in the old James Bond film "A view to a kill". I secretly wanted to be arrested and cuffed while I was in town. Maybe next time. Drewl.

One of the best laid out museums I have ever visited. Great collection of uniforms, transport and historical documents. Nice building with tanks, a Cessna and a police railcar in the grounds. The collection of guns and weapons is very interesting. And it's free! Well worth a visit

The museum had interesting exhibits, was staffed by friendly people and was air-conditioned. It was well worth a visit when nearby in the gardens.

This museum was established in 1958 at one of the buildings located at the Police Training Centre (Pulapol) Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur. Then, the wood building loading three main parts viz police force history, emergency and career, highly recomended if you are at KL

The kids stumbled across this when out & about in KL & came back raving about it..."oh you would have loved this Dad, all police cars & motorbikes" so I`ll give it a good review cos lets face it, there`s not much else in KL after the Towers is there?

Not great for prams or wheelchair access - entrance has steps only - so was a bit of a challenge for us to get in to the building. Lots of items that contained lots of historical significance. Kids found the museum to be boring.

This museum covers all the history of how the police were formed. The display takes you through the stages and is very informative. I was the only visitor and had a good tour. All the displays were explained and their significance to the history. Good collection of weapons an confiscated weapons including home made ones. Well worth a visit and... More

i went to the museum as part of a day trip to the Park and was glad that I did. The best aspect of the museum isn't the exhibits. It is the narrative that accompanies them. If you don't take time to read the information presented, the museum trip would be relatively short, as you can only look at uniforms... More

Learned lots - our visit made more exciting by loads of kindergarten children hurtling through place followed by hassled teachers! Interesting displays of weaponry and we learnt a lot about different Malaysian regions and history.
