Bank Negara Malaysia Museum & Art Gallery information
This well-designed complex of small museums focuses on banking, finance and money and is not dull in the least. Highlights include a collection of ancient coins and money (and a slick interactive screen to examine its history), a gallery of the bank's private art collection, a surreal 3m-long tunnel lined with RM1 million (in the Children's Gallery), and a history of the little-known Islamic banking system (which must comply with Sharia law, including prohibitions against usury).
