Learn about the history of Malaysia’s telecommunications industry at Kuala Lumpur’s Muzium Telekom, housed in a charming, neo-classical building.
Muzium Telekom, Jalan Raja Chulan
50200 Kuala Lumpur
From morse code and the telegraph to the digital revolution of the 20th century, Muzium Telekom contains displays and exhibits spanning over a century of the telecommunications industry in Malaysia.
The property in which the museum is housed itself has a long history with the telecommunications field. Built in 1928, the charming neo-classical building started out life as a manual telephone exchange before becoming British Malaya’s first mechanical exchange a decade later.
The building was set to be demolished in the 1980s, but was ultimately saved in time by then prime minister Tun Mahathir, and the National Archives of Malaysia subsequently declared the building a historic landmark.
Covering three floors, the museum adopts an interactive approach, helping keep the experience as fun as possible.
There is a library on-site that is accessible to the public on weekdays. The museum is located next to the Maybank Numismatic Museum.
