The KL City Gallery

The first thing you see from the KL City Gallery is the old colonial building and the ‘I ♥ KL’ sign in front of it. Many visitors stop here first to take a photo for their memories before they even enter the KL City Gallery.

KL City Gallery souvenir shop

It then continues to a few small last exhibition models of Kuala Lumpur before you can leave the KL City Gallery through the souvenir shop. Here you can take a souvenir from Kuala Lumpur with you: everyone will find the right one, from models of the Petronas Tower to key rings or wood carvings. However, it is of course not a must to buy a souvenir, so do not feel pressured to do so. You can simply leave the KL City Gallery.
