This museum is a little inconspicuous; it is seated up the hill from the Islamic Art museum and across the street from the national planetarium. It is free to enter however and it is well worth it; parked outside are many vehicles, ranging from armored personnel carriers to military cannons. Inside you will find a very well-kept museum which displays... More

The museum is medium size and you can learn a lot about the history of Malaysian police traced back to the malacca kingdom time. But there are very few people visiting the museum (there was only me). And you need to walk a long way from the railway station as well.

Royal Malaysia Police Museum is the most organized and the most detailed museum of Malaysia. This place has loads to see and it is absolutely free to visit this place. It is just 5 minutes from the National Mosque and 1 minute from Planetarium on foot. The museum holds the entire history of Police in terms of pictures of war,... More

A short walk from the bird park. Spent couple hours here. Provided a very thorough history of malaysia and prior wars. Much more to read and look at then thought plus it is free.

Briefly explains Malaysia policing history from colonial era till modern day, very limited information talks about Malayan Emergency. Plenty of weapons displayed in weaponry section are not properly labelled. Perhaps should not have any expectation since it is FREE.

Large collection of historical pieces including an impressive display of seized weapons. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

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.
