Details

The double-storey building in which the museum is housed used to be an old district police station and prison.

Constructed in 1878 by British police officer Capt. Harry Charles Syers, it was used to carry out sentences according to the British judicial system of the time. The upper floor functioned as a courtroom whereas the ground floor served as a prison.

The historical building was gazetted by the Department of National Heritage on 19 November 2002 and has since been restored to its former glory.

It now functions as a museum with 3 exhibition halls containing displays and dioramas on the building itself, the Selangor Sultanate and Jugra’s other nearby heritage buildings including Istana Bandar Jugra, Masjid Sultan Alaeddin and Makam Sultan Abdul Samad (Royal Mausoleum).

The star attractions at the Muzium Insitu Jugra are 2 General Motors Canada (GMC) C15TA armoured trucks produced during the Second World War and used by the Royal Malaysian Police during the emergency period around 1948-1960.
