The new art gallery building combines traditional design with modern lines much like many of the new Malaysian buildings put up over the last two decades beginning with the Dayabumi Complex.

Built with aesthetics and functionality in mind, the art gallery creates a space for the preservation, development, exploration and experimentation of the various facts of art in Malaysia. It is a centre for cultural items, art and crafts.

Open: 10am – 6pm daily (closed on Friday from 12:45-2.45 pm)
Admission: Free

Both the National Art Gallery and National Theatre are located outside the Lake Titiwangsa Gardens, north of the city center.
