Genuinely surprised at the beautiful galleries/exhibitions in the art gallery. I wish to come back again and spend more time in the gallery, as it was close to closing time when I visited. Totally worth a visit as admission is free!

Most of the gallery are closed for maintenance & repairing works at this moment. Not worth a visit even no admission fee

Spent 4 hours and thoroughly enjoyed the Biennale. Did not disapoint. And it is free! It made my KL trip special. Don't miss the "school bags "exhibition at the side before the entrance.
