Used to be wonderful and helpful staff and free entrance. Started charging RM5 few years ago, fair game. Just found out they now charge RM10. Still OK.

What's not OK is they MAKE you pay the RM10 entrance fee to get the Cendana QR code. I'm a local. I've been there umpteen times. I've helped so many people take photos at the metal and sign and promote this place as the first stop for a l newbie to Malaysia. Never again.

For reference, Cendana neighbours like Illusion 3D museum and Lost in Chinatown are paid attractions but they leave the QR code out for public use.

Terribly disappointed and frustrated.

Crowded with tourists but a nice place to have a look at the history of this city. Simplified Chinese, English, and Malay are all presented in all exhibits here. Even locals find it interesting to look back at the old historical pictures here and to be reminded of the past, like the floods once this city had. 

It has a city model which may be even more beautiful than the Singaporean one, even though the overall exhibition are not comparable to it. You cannot see much deep information of city planning here, but it's a good place to look around and taking pictures.

Pretty impressive show in the second floor. RM 10 for the entrance. If you're interested in the history of Malaysia, specifically the founding of KL this is the place you can start from. First floor has a souvenir shop along with workshop and a small dessert store.

Being a KL person I have never actually take it upon myself to learn about its history.

The time taken to explore this gallery took about an hour +, not too long. But it's enough for me to understand how this city came about. I'm quite glad I made the trip.

Much smaller and more compact than we expected but a pleasurable and interesting diversion, even if only for an hour. The gift shop actually had some of the best souvenirs we saw in all of Malaysia. Very good location. Lots of people getting their pics in front of the I💜KL sculpture outside
