Located on top of a tall hill, the view around the museum is rather breathtaking for photography. Entrance to the museum is free. The display in the museum is interesting for any cat lovers.

A refreshing difference from your typical museum. Practically everything related to cats can be found in this museum be it factual or amusing. The place does look due for a sprucing up but nevertheless an enjoyable time spent. We visited in the afternoon which was a good respite from the afternoon heat outdoors.

I brought my children to visit Cat Museum. It stated @DBKU hall in Petra Jaya. It open daily. Free entry. If u wanna take photo u must pay only rm3 per camera. It quit interesting to bring children who loves cat like my babies 😘😘. Very recommended if u wanna know about types of 'kucing' cats.

Its a pretty strange and random place, a bit tired, dirty and dark but fun none the less. Just an FYI the sticker they give you to put on your phone is super sticky and may leave residue. Good fun tho, a cool building and view over the city.

If you look for a museum or activity never done in your life visit this funky place. Honestly there is nothing worthy to see these cat artifacts all kitsch and stupid ... Except maybe a very few but not sure they are real antiques as the mess of the museography is mixing a old Chinese artifact near a bag of... More
