National Museum, He is the same Museum of Negara (Negara Museum), was founded to preserve and disseminate the national culture of Malaysia. It was created on the basis of the four museums that existed earlier. The National Museum is located on the former territory of the Museum of Selangor, who was destroyed in 1945 during World War II. In a new form, he opened his doors in 1963, six years after the independence of Malaysia.
