We are the one and only art gallery cum museum here in West Malaysia displaying native art from East Malaysia . # listed on Lonely Planet Leonard Yiu has been an antique and art dealer /collector since 1988. In 2006, he decided to open another outlet at The Annexe building situated behind Central Market, which is known as the Arts and Craft Centre of Kuala Lumpur. ART HOUSE GALLERY MUSEUM OF ETHNIC ARTS is devoted entirely to ethnic arts of this region. It's called a Gallery due to it's tasteful art sense and decor ; It's also called a Museum because part of the exhibits, notably antiques/artefacts from Borneo are NOT FOR SALE.

Several rooms filled with treasures and sometimes very strange objects of all kinds and origins. The visit is fascinating and the staff is very friendly. We would definitely come again to buy some more of this valuable tribal art.

It's a private gallery. Almost half of the items are for selling. Owner will explains during our visit. It's better than a typical museum
