Jade Museum Kuala Lumpur located in the bustling area of Bukit Bintang, the Jade Museum is a place to feast your eyes
on some beautifully craved jades. This newly opened museum exhibits some of the rarest jades
in the world.
Here at the Jade Museum, you will be awed by the beauty of these jades. The exhibited
pieces include contemporary jewellery sets, tools, weapons, ornamental carvings and
sculptures in intricate design which have spiritual significance as well as ancient
symbolic meanings. Other than these jades which are on display, there are also pieces
which are for sale for visitors who wish to take home some souvenirs. At the Jade
Museum also, there are other services provided. Tourists can join the jade cutting
workshop and the gemological authencity certificate.

service from any hotel in Kuala Lumpur. While you are still around this area, head over to
the Malay house (Rumah Penghulu) to look at original traditional Malay house which was
initially the house of the head of a village in Kedah. The house was bought over by the
Heritage of Malaysia Trust and relocated here in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The aim of
the relocation was to preserve the intricacy and authenticity of Malay house back in
the 1920s. The admission fee is RM5 per person but if you wish to have a guided tour,
it will be another RM10
