This is a nicely-sequenced exhibit that suffers from the universal Malaysian museum problem of poor lighting. With a facelift, it could be excellent. The real star is a room full of political cartoons from the 1950s, which really put a fresh and humorous perspective on Malaysia's independence. I suspect that the level of detail might be a bit much for foreign visitors who are completely fresh to the subject, but it's rewarding for Malaysians who know the basics already.

This is a memorial dedicated to remembering the moments of Malaya before independence. Nice place to remember and review our country's history. Air-conditioned and free entry. When I went, the place closed at around 4pm. Right opposite of A'Famosa and walking distance from the Mahkota Parade Mall. Recommended if you are a history lover.

The Proclamation Of Independence Memorial is actually a museum dedicated to the independence of Malaysia and the event leading up to it. The museum is laid out in chronological order starting from the first wave of European colonialism to the ending of World War II, followed by the movement to achieve independence from the British Empire. A large section is dedicated to the actual independence. A very informative museum, beautifully presented and free. You probably need to be a local tor political scientist to appreciate the information in such depth.

Just near to the Famosa fort, this building is a memorial of Malaysian independence as the historical independence statement of Malaysia from the British rule was declared here. Good to see and have a feel of freedom from British rule for the Malaysians.
