The entry fee to this gallery can be used as credit in the café or gift shop. Includes historical description of KL and a terrific light show. The whole family enjoyed the exhibits.

I like history, and this gallery is full of it, from the roots and meaning of KL ("muddy estuary"), to plans for the future of the city. The second floor has an architectural 3D map of the city, which I absolutely loved! My only complaint, if any, was that the model was in a dark room, which is part of... More

There is an entrance fee of MYR 5.00. Overall, I think it was a good experience. I was able to see the historical growth of Kuala Lumpur. There was also a local art exhibition on display. But, I was a lil' disappointed because the tour was short-lived. I was expecting more things to see and explore.

Not much of interest or excitement except a huge scale model of Kuala Lumpur. Didn't get much of a good look at it with the pointless light and music show then marched out for the hard sell of souvenirs. We had a guided tour which was interesting but the exhibits were pretty ordinary.

Unfortunately when I went to the City Gallery (which I did not intend on going to) the main attraction (City Model Show) was closed. But they weren't charging admission so I decided to check it out. It was really cute to see some history of the city and to see some local art. I didn't stay long but it was... More
