Situated within Merdeka Square along Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, the National Textiles Museum is hailed as one of the most significant heritage landmarks in the Kuala Lumpur city centre. Open to the public in 2010, the museum showcases the process and technology of textiles, and houses exquisite collections of traditional apparel, accessories, and textiles in Malaysia in a beautiful Mughal-Islamic style heritage building. Designed by Arthur Charles Alfred Norman (who also contributed to the design of the iconic Sultan Abdul Samad Building and Cathedral of St. Mary), four distinctive galleries can be found within the two-storey National Textiles Museum.
