Built as a bank in 1910 the building was chosen to become a museum. The Moorish features and Islamic motifs of this tri-level building blend well with the neighboring Mogul buildings. In 1996, the renovated building opened its doors as the National History Museum. It now houses a permanent collection of artifacts and dioramas depicting the wealth of Malaysia's historical heritage, ranging from 520 million-year-old metamorphic sandstone to an eight-sided gold coin dating back to the 15th Century.
