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?

We found this museum of great interest and would thoroughly recommend a visit to it. It was also air conditioned which helped. :)

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.

This is great. Even my local friends did not know this Museum. Locate few minutes walk from Bird Park in a nice, quite hill. It covers the history of law enforcement in Malaysia. The part i enjoyed the most was the gun exhibition. There show the gun that Malaysian Police used and using now. Most people will spend a lot... More

This museum kept me interested for a good couple of hours. It not only gives a great historical insight into the evoluotion of law enforcement in Malaysia, but the history of Malaysia from the Portugese/Dutch and British imperialism, right through to today. On display are also many weapons (including illegal ones seized by police), as well as service weapons and... More

This Museum is located within the Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park, on the hop-on hop-off bus route, just above the Islamic Arts Museum. The entrance has a police guard office, however entry is free, and the counter staff are particularly welcoming. The Museum is divided into three galleries which trace through the early - more colonial - history of the... More

We went based on the reviews on trip advise and are so glad we did. The grounds contain interesting historical items and the museum itself is well organised and provides a fascinating insight into current and historically policing. And the whole experience is free. The nearby Park is also worth a visit.
