“Good way to start any tour in KL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

The KL city gallery offers a great way to understand the origins of this fascinating city and has an interesting city model display were the whole skyline can be observed in a miniature size. There is also a good souvenir shop. There is no fee for the tour.

Don't forget a photo with the "I love KL" structure just outside the building

“A free insight to the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Definitely worth a quick visit when visiting the Jamek msajid and surrounding buildings, which should take 30 minutes or so. Well maintained, loads of info, free wifi, an impressive city model display and overall interesting facts on KL origins. Also, good pics outside with the I heart KL sign, LOL!

“Enjoyable Free Walking Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

My cousin and I came to the gallery to take part in a heritage walking tour.
Jasmin was our guide, she was knowledgeable, funny and very patient.
This walk is suitable for most people, it is more of a stroll actually, and I highly recommend it.

“Interesting model”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We stopped by here while exploring Merdeka Square and were not that impressed. Very brief history of KL (stop by the National Museum for a more detailed history) so wouldn't spend longer then an hour there. Highlight was the excellent model of KL complete with lights. Good gift shop as well.
