I was really looking forward to seeing this museum but was disappointed, there were lots of different uniforms on display, a few old guns, knives and weapons and a few modes of transport. The best thing about this museum was the air cond to get away from the heat. After a while I just skimmed through the displays, entry is... More

you will learn in a short time about the history of Malaysia since the police force has been in existence in Malaysia since the days of the Malacca Sultanate era. And lot of history, major case and incident involve the police and the people. I was excited to see the old uniforms and equipment used by the police in Malaysia.

Even if you've never contemplated the history of the Malaysian police force, this museum is worth a visit.

Such an overwhelming place - almost too much of everything! Lots of costumes and party masks. Especially for my work, blank masks for painting and modelling. Lots of seasonal decorations too.

I'm so glad we discovered this museum. Even our taxi driver hadn't been here; when I said that I had read good reviews he said that he ought to visit! Apart from one other couple, we were the only ones there for about an hour before a local school group arrived. It didn't disappoint. We were welcomed by two friendly... More

We stumbled across this museum when we were walking down to the city after we had visited the Butterfly Park and Orchid Garden. The buildings are old colonial style and we were drawn to look at them but then realised it was a museum. There are extensive displays and all interesting. The information is in English and other languages. There... More

This museum is a little bit obscure compared to the more famous National museum and Islamic museum but it is well worth a visit for anyone,with multiple exhibit showing off pieces and the different periods of the existence of the police from colonial Malaya to current Malaysia

This is well worth a visit. The displays and artifacts are tastefully and professionaly presented. I wanted to give this 5 stars but it earned 4 simply because without some prior knowledge of Malaysian history it is difficult to follow it in a chronilogical order. I feel it would be easier to follow if we could simply start at the... More

The Royal Malaysian Police Museum is well maintained and very informative with abundant memorabilia . You get to relive the memories of the bloody communist emergency in which the Police played a key role defending the country and an insight into the country's most violent gangsters such as Bentong Kali and Botak Chin and the Heroics of certain Policemen who...
