“Quite a collection to browse!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

For display of gifts received, this gallery has lots more than i expected. This prime minister must have travelled extensively during his tenure. The gifts are gorgeous and plenty, one can easily spend 2 hours there. Unforgunately, most guidebooks seem to overlook it and thus provide scant info about this place.

In the gallery, I wish there were some descriptions about this politician, what he had done over the years, the major accomplishments, or the legacy that he left behind.....

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

It is a nice museum to pay a visit for. Entrance fee is cheap. You will be blown by all the gifts that the Malaysia ex-PM received from other countries or organizations during his service period.

“Very well worth a visit”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

This is some sort of a museum of souvenirs. Souvenirs received by the former prime minister of Malaysia who served 22 years. Imagine the number of items he has received during those times. Obviously they only give good stuff to a prime minister and you can view them here.

They charge a fee for entry and there is another charge for photography. The building internal architecture is worthwhile seeing.

The first syllable of Mahathir's name sounds like horse in Chinese. It is not surprising he loves horses. You will find many horse themed items in this gallery. By the way, 2014 is the year of the horse!

“Great for culturesists”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

We visited here after a chance meeting with the architect and talking to him. Inside you will find all the gifts given to the Malaysian leader from countries across the globe, some wonderful artefacts. If you have nothing to do then visit the gallery
