Museum of Islamic Civilisation information
This museum consists of six galleries devoted to Muslim culture and Malaysian history. The five domes represent the holy Five Pillars of Islam. It's in need of a facelift and an update, but can fill up an hour or two of a slow afternoon.
To get to the museum, 2km south of the city, catch a bus (RM1) along Jln Tunku Abdul Rahman and alight just before the mosque. It's a short but steep walk uphill to the museum. A taxi will cost around RM10 to RM15.
Bus 13 also goes right round past the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and stops near Jln Muzium (look for the Sacred Heart Church).
