18 ART GALLERIES YOU CAN VISIT IN KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

I had the chance to visit Kuala Lumpur with some friends from college, and what we loved the most is the variety of food that we could try there! While we were there, I requested one afternoon to visit some museums and art galleries in Kuala Lumpur, because it is mandatory for me to learn something about any place I would visit.

Among so many art galleries in Kuala Lumpur, we were only able to visit two of them: Galeri Petronas and Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. For your reference (and my future reference as well when I go back to KL), I have compiled a list of art galleries in Kuala Lumpur all history and art lovers can visit when in this beautiful city.

But before that, you might wanna also visit other articles I have written about Malaysia:

So without further ado, here is the list of art galleries in Kuala Lumpur that you can visit, with important information such as address, telephone number, operating hours, and links to their social media accounts:

Located at the Merdeka Square, KL City Gallery showcases a lot of information about the history of Kuala Lumpur. The building is formerly used as a public printing office then a public library. The lower floor exhibits a scale model of Merdeka Square entitled “Old Kuala Lumpur” and the upper floor exhibits a scale model of the modern Kuala Lumpur entitled “The Spectacular City Model Show”. A photo opportunity outside the museum with the giant “I heart KL” sign is a must.
