This is my second time to the museum and still love it, amazed by the scale, collections, staff and organisation.

It’s a perfect place to visit especially on a hot day (proper air conditioning, free wifi). I also dined at the Restaurant Noza, the food were delicious, though tourist price.

Definitely would recommend people to visit, be them local or international. The museum shop is a good place to get souvenirs. There is a small onsite car park if you’re driving there.

There are many Islamic arts on display at the museum - from clothes, calligraphy, architecture, metal works - that can be found in this museum. You might spend a few hours there there if you stop and read every sign. This musem has a few floors to it and you can either move around using elevator or stairs. There are also benches for those who need a break in the museum. For those who would like to perform solat, you can drop by at the national mosque opposite of the museum. For those who drive, there is a lot of parking space opposite the museum which is also the rear side of the mosque and there are a more limited space right by the museum too.

While I didn't fully understand all the items on display, I am so glad I visited this museum. The building is beautiful, the items are amazing, and the atmosphere is very calming. So glad I happened to stop in and visit.

This is most rewarding attraction in Kuala Lumpur in my opinion. The Islamic Arts Museum has a rich and extensive collection of artefact from around the Islamic world. The China and India exhibitions are particularly impressive. The building itself includes some key features of Islamic architecture. Visitors will get a brief but informative overview of the umma. Admission (14 MYR) is cheap.
