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.

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
