Quite dull museum, far too much writing and long chunks of texts. The only positive was that it was ridiculously cheap! Only go if you are really interested in Malaysian politics - but even then you will learn more from a wikipedia article than you...More

The museum is a bit boring & they are not operating according to the time table. It's closing before lunch hour during my visit

This museum is somehow boring, it's not really attractive for tourists. They need to do some upgrade. Mostly I only come inside for the air con, since it's freakin hot outside during day.

this state is where the 1957 proclamation of independence was held. Sad to say that not many people come to visit this museum to learn the history of our country independence. It was UMNO together with the coalition parties that bring Tanah Melayu to independence...More

The building was nice but the museum itself was rather boring. Would be better if it has more recent content as well.

We recently visited Malacca and stepped into the UMNO Museum, which is positioned along Jalan Kota street in between the Architecture Museum of Malaysia and the Stamp Museum, at the bottom of St. Paul's Hill. The UMNO (United Malays National Organization) Museum movement provides a...More
