This museum doesn't take long, maybe 30 minutes, but it is free. The variety of clothing styles of the peoples of Malaysia are on display.

A big building in Merdeka square. If textiles is your interest do visit. We didn't have time. Just a Photostop

The museum is housed in a historic building, one of KL's landmarks. It is an old fashioned-style museum, only across the street from KL City Gallery. Visitors with a special interest in textiles and their history will no doubt spend more time there, but it is well worth a visit, yet another insight into Malaysian culture and history.

This museum, housed in such a beautiful building, is well worth a visit. And it’s free. Easy to get there either by underground from the city centre or by the hop on, hop off bus.

The exhibits, ranging from different styles of batik, tie dye, embroidery and costumes are well presented with clear annotation, in English, explaining the process and technique. The history of Malaysian Textiles was also clearly explained.

There were few visitors while we were in and therefore the visit was not rushed. Noted that the cafe and shop is not open until February.

Would certainly recommend this as part of a visit to Kuala Lumpur

It may take you an hour to go through, interesting walk through on a self guided tour, if you had a couple of hours to spare you could add it on the list of places to visit
