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.

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 Great collection of uniforms, transport and historical documents.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

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?
