The place has a large variety from Qurans of different eras, literature pieces (Shahnameh, Diwane Hafiz), history, clothing, jewellery, science etc. Visit to KL without the visit to the museum is incomplete.

I found some of the items lack historical context while others are excellent. But the items artwork etc are broad ranging and very beautiful. The building itself is a work of art.
