First I would like to say that it's probably not going, if you are just going to see the building. Make it part of your day out where you can visit Medeka square, Jamek mosque, as they are all close by. Lovely architecture with lots of photos opportunities.

We were not lucky that the renovation of the building is still going on but nevertheless you can get a very good feel and look of the most amazing architecture with a blend of many styles. The building is almost fairytale like and surely worth the visit.

After visiting the FREE Textile Museum, I visited this attraction. I don't think it is open to the public. Just took picture of the building and its surroundings: Music Museum, Textile Museum,, KL City Gallery, Flagpole, I enjoyed my visit, several attractions near each other. The FREE Purple Line Bus was another bonus!
