A quaint art gallery that houses some souvenir items, paintings, installations and other cultural artifacts about KL. Another informative spot but the prices of the souvenir are much more expensive compared to the Central Market.

This gallery is fairly small, there's some interesting history and artwork but not much to see other than the light show, which is impressive. Entrance is RM5 but the ticket can be exchanged for an RM5 discount in the cafe or gift shop (it will get you a free coffee). Prices in the gift shop are eye-watering.

After 10 years of stay in Kuala Lumpur, only then I had a short but full glimpse of what was Kuala Lumpur before and now thru the 3D KL model show.

The place is not to far yet so close with the train station n it's a small museum. After watching the main show (the history of KL with the special lighting effect) all you can do is just eat or buy a collectable items (to spend the 5RM voucher)
