The Royal Museum



The Royal Museum is possibly the best place to see and experience the royal way of life in an Asian palace.


The Royal Museum opened its doors on 1 February 2013 and is located in the old National Palace which was the official residence of the King and Queen of Malaysia. The old National Palace has now been converted to a museum and is open to the public.



Inside the Royal Palace at 2-storey building, you’ll get to see the 22 interior palace spaces comprising the Balairung Seri (a room where the King meets his subjects), the sleeping chamber, the royal office, the dining hall and resting lounge of the nation’s King.

The Royal Palace used to be closely guarded by cavalry guards and was not open to public. However, now that it’s a Royal Museum, you are allowed into the palace where you’ll be accompanied and given a full guided tour by a former palace guard.

You’ll also be taken to the sleeping chamber of the King and Queen – a place where no one could ever enter, not even for people who have worked here for many years.
