view web site ›'s insider take:

The National Art Gallery was founded in 1958; its current premises, in a leafy enclave of KL near Lake Titiwangsa, opened in 2000. A modernistic blend of slate and tinted glass, with a striking, angular metallic roof, the museum houses more than 2,500 works of art. The collection concentrates on contemporary evocations of country life, in an Expressionist style that, while it may seem a bit old-fashioned to Western visitors, gives a fascinating window on how modern Malaysians see themselves. Admission is free.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 6 pm.
