A wonderful collection of police memorabilia which in turn provides a sense of the history of Malaysia. Easy way to spend an hour or two. If you visit the National Mosque continue up the hill for a little way and follow the signs. It is all up hill, so if walking, pace yourself.

Wide ranging collection of police items including some rare Straits Settlements and Emergency era uniforms and weapons. Worth the effort to get to the Museum and it was easiest to walk up the hill from the National Mosque. Arrived just after opening and was getting crowded later in the morning. Note that photography is not allowed inside the museum.

When we went it was deserted. We may have been the only people there. As others have said, there is so much to see. It is perhaps too much of the same though by the time you get to the end but interesting all the same. As we went through we started off reading a lot of the descriptions, but... More

This museum in the Park that contains the Bird park is really well laid out and informative. It gives a good overview of the history of Malaysia and the part the Dutch and English played in its past.

One of the best police museum and exhibits I have visited...first viewed It in 2003 and had not been back since. Handy location not far from the Mosque and the old railway station. Housed in the building which was the senior police officers mess, lots of motorised exhibits in the grounds, some of which had received a lick of paint... More

If you are walking around the Lake gardens, this museum is worth a visit. Housed in a building which was the offices mess, the exhibits detail the Royal Malaysian Police from its inception from the British era to date. Uniforms have evolved and especially interesting is the armoury room. The outdoor displays include armoured cars and cannons.

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 Great collection of uniforms, transport and historical documents.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
