Muzium Negara used to be the site of the Selangor Museum, established in 1898. After the country's independence in 1957, the new federal government built a newer, larger museum on the same spot.
Once completed, the reigning King at the time, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong III, Tuanku Syed Putra Al-Haj Ibni Almarhum Syed Hassan Jamalullail officially opened the museum on the 31st of August 1963.
Today, the museum houses various exhibits depicting the historical background of the country. The exhibits are on a rotation basis, so it is best to check out the museum on their exhibits at the time.
Other than that, one can find, in the museum grounds various national treasures including the istana (palace) of Sultan Zainal Abidin III, Sultan of Terengganu in 1884. The palace, the Istana Satu, is built entirely of hardwood, and built in the museum compounds in 1974.
Other attractions include the bust of Sir Francis Light, whom founded Penang, as well as the first cable car from Bukit Bendera, Penang.
Muzium Negara is located near the Department of Museums Malaysia, at Jalan Damansara. Opening Hours: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Opens every day except during Aidil Fitri and Aidil Adha.
