Muzium Kraf Kuala Lumpur

Our next tangankraf journey brought us to Muzium Kraf Kuala Lumpur, also known as Kuala Lumpur Craft Museum. My son, wife, and I visited the museum on Sunday, 5th February 2023. Yesterday at the time of writing.

Traffic was acceptable. After a 30-minute drive from our home in Sungai Buloh, we arrived at the museum. How excited we were. This was our first-ever visit to the museum.

We didn’t really know where and how to park inside the premises when we arrived. So, we decided to park outside by the roadside at one of the designated parking spots, close to the main gate.

Lucky for us, it was Sunday. Not so many cars. For those who prefer to take public transportation, there is an MRT station right across the road from the museum. Look for Conlay MRT station. Okay, more about the museum. Keep on reading.

Muzium Kraf Kuala Lumpur is a prominent cultural institution, dedicated to showcasing Malaysia’s cultural heritage through the beauty of its traditional arts and crafts.

Situated in the capital city of Malaysia, the museum features a vast collection of handicrafts from various ethnic groups in the country, including Malay, Chinese, Indian, and indigenous peoples.

Some of the notable exhibits include intricate batik textiles, wood carvings, and traditional clothing. These pieces not only reflect the high level of craftsmanship of our artisans but also provide a fascinating glimpse into the history of cultural developments in Malaysia.

In addition to the display of traditional arts and crafts, the museum also provides educational and cultural programs, such as workshops and lectures, to help visitors gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of these traditional forms of expression.

Experience the creative process first-hand and gain a more immersive appreciation of the museum’s collections through these workshops. We brought Ashraf to try batik canting kit painting. More on that in the next article.

The museum’s official shop, meanwhile, offers visitors the opportunity to purchase authentic traditional crafts. This helps support local artisans and keep traditional arts and crafts thriving.

Whether you are a local resident, a tourist, or an academic, Muzium Kraf Kuala Lumpur offers a unique and enriching experience that is not to be missed. Add Muzium Kraf on your wishlist now. Do visit the next time you’re in Kuala Lumpur.

In the meantime, you may visit Muzium Kraf’s official website. Much useful information can be gotten there. Like Tokoh Kraf and official publications. You can learn a lot from Tokoh Kraf alone. Not forgetting, Koleksi Kraf.

Tokoh Kraf or National Craft Icon Award is the highest recognition given by the Malaysian government through the approval of the Cabinet in 1996.

The award was established to acknowledge, encourage and motivate skilled artisans to be more creative, innovative, and productive so as to preserve the quality of their craftsmanship while contributing to the development of the nation’s socioeconomic status.

You may click any of the icons on the page and learn about these artisans, their biographies and their creations as well as their contributions in efforts to preserve, maintain and dignify our nation’s arts and crafts at the national and international levels.

And there’s Muzium Maya. Click that and give it a try! Muzium Maya lets you visit the museum online, interactively without having to visit the actual physical museum. Personally, I prefer to visit the museum and see all those collections in person. More satisfying.

In conclusion, the visit was fun and very educational. Our son, Ashraf told us he was so happy that we brought him to the museum. He kept talking about it in the car on our way back to Sungai Buloh. As parents, we couldn’t be happier hearing all that! See you again soon, Muzium Kraf Kuala Lumpur!
