Muzium Negara is not far from the Lake Gardens and Tugu Kebangsaaa, another 2 iconic structures of Malaysia.

The Kuala Lumpur railway station is a railway station located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Completed in 1910 to replace an older station on the same site, the station was Kuala Lumpur's railway hub in the city for the Federated Malay States Railways and its successor Keretapi Tanah Melayu, before Kuala Lumpur Sentral assumed much of its role in 2001. The station is notable for its architecture, adopting a mixture of Eastern and Western designs.
For close to 100 years, the magnificent station served as the city's main railway hub before KL Sentral took over in 2001. Despite that, the original railway hub is still being used today for certain KTM Komuter services and remains an iconic part of Malaysian history.
