The National Museumwas built in 1963 and displays Malaysia's history, economy, arts, crafts and various cultures. The museum was revamped a few years ago after the closing of the National Museum of History and many of the ethnographic exhibits that the museum was best known for, have been put away. The museum is worth an hour stop, if only to see the building itself. Its sweeping roof is characteristic of the northern Malay Minangkabau style. Panoramic murals welcome you from the front of the building and lead you to the colorful displays inside.
