The Malay World Museum or also known as Malay World Ethnology Museum is located just beside the "Muzium Negara". Many visitors do not visit this museum because it is not widely promoted compared to the National Museum.
Admission to this museum is FREE hence if you have only an hour or so to spare, we would suggest that you visit this exhibits and come back another time to visit the main museum.
