We've often walked down from the Bird Park and passed this by, but it's free, welcoming and really worth a visit. Even if you think that there's nothing to interest you in such a museum, you're sure to find something and we spent an hour or so here looking and learning. I could have quite happily spent hours in the... More

The police museum was empty on the day I visited (I got the impression it is probably empty quite often quiet). The two policewomen on duty were very polite. A lot of interesting artefacts are presented in chronological order.

Was introduced to this place by a local resident. In my opinion the most interesting museum in KL. Far more memorable than the national museum. It's a surprise that a lot of people don't know about this place, and it was free entry at the time I went (donations welcomed). Has a good selection of confiscated weaponry; guns, knives and...

Interesting museum, however, I can't overcome the ugly smell indoors. The display need to be improved, it look a bit amateurish!

Original and fascinating museum. Covers a wide range of subjects and is evidently maintained with justifiable and affectionate pride by the police authorities. Housed in the old police officers' facilities for added authenticity.

Quiet, lots of exhibits, lots of information, lots to learn, or in other words, a proper museum! I dropped by this afternoon and I think I was the only visitor there -which is a shame as it deserves far more exposure. Although only a ten minute walk from Kuala Lumpur station, it is though slightly tucked away. To get there... More
