Gallery D: Malaysia Today
National Museum

This gallery exposes the early history of the nationalist movement championed by national figures from various races and of differing political backgrounds, beginning from the British intervention until independence was achieved in 1957. This gallery also highlights the achievements enjoyed by the country after its independence until the formation of Malaysia in 1963 and today’s events. Among the important documents on display is the original copy of the letter of appointment of His Majesty, the XIV Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the Head of State of Malaysia.
