What to Expect?

The musuem is a 3-min walk from the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia

Gallery A
The gallery explains how policing used to be carried out during the days of the early Malays Sultanate, for example where Temenggung performed the role of police chief and prison superintendent among his many others responsibilities.

Walking through replicas of old Malacca streets you learned about policing during the Portuguese and Dutch colonial eras before arriving at the British era where today's RMP has its origin.

Gallery B
This gallery provides details on how the police during Malaya's and the Straits Settlement (Penang, Malacca, Singapore), Federated Malay States (Selangor, Perak, Pahang, Negeri Sembilan), Unfederated Malay States (Kedah, Perlis, Kelantan, Terengganu) Sabah and Sarawak.

Gallery C
This gallery covers the Malayan emergency and describes the sacrifices and the struggle against the CT's and the success of the police's Special branch in particular in helping to defeat that determined enemy.

    Interesting museum next to the Islamic Arts Museum. Free entry which was great with exhibits ranging from disused vehicles, the history of the police and key events. Not the best museum I’ve been too but worth 20-30 minutes. Air con also wasn’t working which wasn’t great.

    Interesting and very informative. We can learn history of police services, vehicles, weapons and lots more. Entrance is free. Advise to spend 45 minutes to 1 hour.

    An excellent museum. Lots of interesting artefacts and it covers the entire history of police in Malaysia and Malaya and the States. Also a very reasonable and balanced view of history, unlike some other museums in KL!
    This is well worth a visit. Sited in a beautiful old colonial building with parkland surroundings and as a bonus it’s free!

    7 years ago this was one of the most enjoyable venues I came across after Google searching, after the pandemic subsided I made it a point to walk all the way across KL just to see the familiar exhibits and say hi to the friendly Polis officers on duty.

    There are many vehicles, weapons, artillery pieces and even an entire patrol boat on display, it must have been a huge undertaking to tow and install everything here.

    Inside the facility you will see many hallways and exhibits depicting many eras of Malayan history from colonial times to the Emergencies of last century. There are some very intense dioramas depicting close quarters jungle warfare and you can see and touch many relics of each era including equipment, armaments and period uniforms.

    The Police Museum is a hidden gem and anyone interested in military history, law enforcement or even war gaming would find this place well worth an hour or two to slowly explore.

    Many of the vintage machines like the police motorcycles are in immaculate condition though always ask if you're allowed to touch or interact with them first ?

    There's many APV outsides. The museum is divided into three sections and are quite informative. There's one section filled with models of cars, planes and boats. And the weaponry section is filled with guns and weapons that are certainly familiar to those that play FPS games.

    The downside of the museum is in some sections the air-conditioning and light is not working.
