A highly-rated unique museum that delves into the Malaysian economy, the Bank’s role in the nation’s economic development and financial landscape since pre-independence to the present-day. Worry not, they do have a children's gallery to get kids interested.
What to Expect?
The gallery offers a multifaceted range of themes through its six permanent galleries: Children’s Gallery, the Bank Negara Malaysia Gallery, Economics Gallery, Islamic Finance Gallery, Numismatics Gallery and Art Gallery.
Exhibits and Artifacts
Reinforcing the Bank’s role as the leader of national numismatic and supporter of arts heritage, the Museum also showcases numismatic treasures that are as old as history as well as its dynamic collection of Malaysian and ASEAN artworks.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Bank Negara Malaysia Museum and Art Gallery, and I must say, it exceeded my expectations. This unique museum offers a fascinating blend of history, art, and finance, providing visitors with an engaging and educational experience.
The museum is conveniently located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, easily accessible via public transportation. Upon entering, I was greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff members who were more than happy to provide assistance and answer any questions. The admission is free, which is always a bonus!
The exhibits are thoughtfully designed and well-presented, covering a wide range of topics related to Malaysia's economic history, financial systems, and the role of Bank Negara Malaysia. The interactive displays and multimedia presentations kept me engaged, and I especially enjoyed learning about the evolution of Malaysian currency, from the early days of barter trade to modern banknotes and coins.
What truly sets this museum apart is the stunning art gallery, showcasing an impressive collection of Malaysian and Southeast Asian contemporary art. The artworks are not only visually captivating, but they also provide valuable insights into the region's rich cultural heritage and diversity.
In addition, the Children's Gallery offers fun, interactive activities that cater to younger visitors, making it an excellent destination for families. There is also a well-stocked souvenir shop where you can find unique gifts and keepsakes to remember your visit.
Overall, I highly recommend the Bank Negara Malaysia Museum and Art Gallery to locals and tourists alike. Whether you're an art enthusiast, history buff, or simply looking for an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon, this museum has something for everyone. Don't forget to check it out next time you're in Kuala Lumpur!
