The Sultan Abdul Aziz Royal Gallery Klang

The Sultan Abdul Aziz Royal Gallery (Galeri Diraja Sultan Abdul Aziz) is one of Malaysia’s most interesting and professionally presented museums.

The Museum

The sheath of this attractive kris is ornamented with gold and gemstones. The blade is said to of exceptional quality.

The museum was opened in 2007 by HRH Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, the ninth Sultan of Selangor. It is dedicated to the memory of his late father, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah.

The museum traces the history and family tree of the Selangor Sultanate from the days when they migrated to the Klang area in the 1700s from Sulawesi which was under Dutch control at the time

The gallery contains a great collection of the late Sultan’s personal artefacts, memorabilia and royal paraphernalia. The displays include day-to-day items (for a king!) like silver tea services and plates as well as a tea spoon collection, cameras, coins, medals, models, some superb krises (Malaysian daggers), replicas of Selangor’s crown jewels, uniforms, samurai helmets and various gifts from royals and dignitaries from around the world.

No photography is allowed inside the galleries so these images come from the official museum brochure.

The Building

The building itself is as impressive as the contents. This classic piece of colonial architecture dated 1909 was designed by AB Hubback who was also architect for Ipoh and KL railway stations and many other famous Malaysian landmarks. Originally built as a colonial government office, the building served as a Japanese military headquarters during WWII and was home to various local government departments since independence before being converted into this excellent museum a few years ago. An old safe which was in use during colonial times can be seen on the ground floor.
