What Visitors Say About Muzium Kesenian Islam Malaysia

Apr 2017
This is by far my favourite Islamic museum. Just a little better than the one in Sharjah and the one in Doha. There is a lot of natural light here, crafts, jewlery, armory as well as really well done models of mosques from around Asia. It is open most days of the week and almost always void of visitors.

A must see when you are in KL.
