Housed in a UNESCO heritage building that dates back over a hundred years, this music museum was opened to the public on August 1, 2015.
The idea for the museum came from Tun Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi in 2006, then Prime Minister of Malaysia.
The objective of Muzium Muzik Malaysia (National Music Museum or Music Museum of Malaysia in English) is to establish a dedicated space to collect and exhibit ethnic musical instruments and to document the development of traditional music in the country.
I would recommend you to visit Muzium Muzik Malaysia if you are interested in traditional musical instruments. They are well-curated in both Bahasa Malaysia and English.
I understand that visitors can enjoy live traditional performances on Sundays.
The museum, albeit of a modest scale, is open daily and admission is free. It is just a short walk from Kuala Lumpur City Gallery.
