About
Ur-Mu or Urban Museum is a one-of-a-kind, private contemporary art museum located at the heart of the city center, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. Tickets are required to enter the museum, available to book at ur-mu.com. Last admission is at 7.30pm. Once a 1950s modernist four-story walk-up apartment comprising eight two-bedroom flats. Ur-Mu now houses contemporary art from Southeast Asia, mainly from local Malaysian artists. A collection that reflects the collector's interest in eclectic, regional works that convey aspirations and moods of the recent era. With 10 themed gallery spaces, named Sens-Asia, People, Kampung Kita, Power Play, Raksasa (Monster), Superheroes, Framing Modernity, Structure, Made's Garden and Sculpture Lounge. Ur-Mu, like all forms of art, is for all the enjoy. We hope to attract not only residence but also tourist who are looking for a leisurely pursuit but with limitations on time.

Throughly enjoyed spending an hour amongst this wonderful collect of art works. They have been brilliantly curated to represent different eras/aspects of Malay culture. Spread over 5 floors in a really interesting part of KL the exhibition is just the right size, plenty to view but not so many that your attention wanders.

Ur Mu is a n art museum tucked in between rolls of old flats in the heart of the city, in fact next to Bukit Bintang.
We were warmly welcomed by Munirah, the caretaker, at Ur Mu. Munirah guided us through six floors showcasing the owner's diverse collections. The curator's creative touch and profound understanding of the country's lifestyle, culture, and history were evident. The museum offers enlightening pieces by local artists, making it a worthwhile morning exploration.
