The National Museum is the driver of museum activities in Malaysia and has been instrumental in the restoration and preservations of the nation’s heritage. Its construction, which represents the national identity, was the climax in the history of the establishment of the earlier museums such as the Taiping Museum, Perak (1883), Sarawak Museum (1888), and Selangor Museum (1889).

Erected on the site of the Selangor Museum, which was destroyed during the Second World War in March 1945, the idea for its construction was triggered in 1957 after the country’s Independence and it was officially announced in 1959. Inspired by the background of national identity, its architectural design was endorsed by the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, enabling it to become a reality in 1961.

Standing proud, it was then officially opened by Malaysia’s Third Yang di-Pertuan Agong on August 1963, six years after the country’s independence.
