Textile Museum 28 September 2010

Tuesday 1pm
This museum with free entrance showcase arts and crafts of woven material. Daily 9am-6pm. Closed on first day of Hari Raya and Hari Raya Aidiladha. 03-2694 3457. We took LRT @Kelana Jaya to Masjid Jamek station. RM2.30 adult one way.
Textile Museum is located at the building next to Bangunan Abdul Samad and a stone throw away from Dataran Merdeka. It has four galleries all together which spread around two floors.
Left- coin belts. Right - This caught En's attention. Modesty disc which worn by little indian children.
Modesty disc and parang parang, used as decoration for the bedroom of peranakan and chinese bridal couple from Penang.
Left- It is an interactive station, showing how the arts and crafts are produced. Hui loves this one. She watched  a few and wanted to view all, till En persuaded her to leave.  Right- batik stamping.

From Masjid Jamek station, follow the Masjid Jamek exit. Walk towards the HSBC bank and river side (on photo). When you reach the end, cross the road and walk toward your right. Textile Museum is on your left, after Agro Bank. En said "It is like Singapore", because of the walking and taking public transport. The difference is I don't feel safe walking on the street here with enhui. My guard would be up and observant of the surrounding, the homeless man by the river bank  and an unpleasant looking woman who approached us for a conversation. In Singapore, I don't feel this way.
