National Textile Museum

The National Textile Museum showcases the origins, development and techniques of local textiles and the role they have had in the rich and diverse heritage of Malaysia. It is housed in a beautiful old heritage building on Merdeka Square in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s main tourist area. The Mughal style building was designed by AB Hubback (who designed so many of the city’s most famous landmarks) and was completed in 1905 as headquarters for the Federated Malay States Railways. In 1917 the building was subsequently handed over to the Selangor Public Works department and over the following decades it served as premises for the Selangor Water Department, the Central Bank, Agricultural Bank, Malaysian Craft and the High Court before being refurbished as a museum. The National Textile Museum opened to the public in 2010. It was gazetted as a historical building in 1983.
