Museum of Islamic Civilisation information
This museum consists of with six galleries devoted to Muslim culture and history in Malaysia and beyond. The five domes represent the holy Five Pillars of Islam. It's in need of facelift and an update, but can fill up an hour of two of a boring afternoon.
To get to the museum complex, catch a bus (RM1) along Jln Tunku Abdul Rahman and get off just before the mosque. Be warned: it's a short but steep walk uphill to the museum. Bus 13 also goes right round past the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and stops near Jln Muzium (look for the Sacred Heart Church). Taxi fare will run between RM10 and RM15.
