A field trip to Petaling Jaya Museum by #ITBSelangor participants.
I didn’t know there’s a Petaling Jaya Museum until I visited the place this morning.
The museum is located in Taman Jaya which is a small park surrounding a lake and is a peaceful heaven in the centre of bustling Petaling Jaya.
It may not be the most exciting museum in Malaysia but it tells the story of how PJ developed.
PJ was established in the 1950s at the instigation of General Sir Gerald Templer who was the High Commissioner of Malaya and the Director of Operations in the struggle against Communist terrorists during the Malayan Emergency which was going on at that time. Enough said, do spare some time to visit the museum, bring your family and friends and see for yourself.
The museum is open 9am to 5pm everyday except Fridays and Public Holidays.
Admission is Free.
