We toured a number of museums during our visit to Kuala Lumpur, but our favorites were the Museum of Islamic Arts and the National Museum of Malaysia.
The Islamic Arts museum was less a collection of art and more of a history lesson as told through the handicrafts of the region through the centuries. It’s also in a newly remodeled building with a number of nice architectural flourishes.
The National Museum was surrounded by road construction but was still open to the public. We only had to cross a two-lane freeway to reach the entrance, but given that there were stairs and that we did it along with some locals convinced us that we weren’t that lost.
