Wow... Haven't seen this image for some time...

I remember this building as the "PTT" of the 80s... At that time, Malayan Banking tower was the only true skyscraper above 50-storeys until the Empire Tower (60-levels) was opened in 1994...

Until today, Maybank remains as one of my fav buildings in KL!

yea.....been to the Numismatic Museum many times before - I am a coin collector & I always took bus from the Maybank bus stop.......so if got time I would just stroll inside .

Directions to the museum: Upon walking to the entrance (next to Starbucks) at the ground level (note: not the banking hall entrance)......just go straight and the museum is on the right. There is also an art gallery inside with non-permanant displays.

Apart from that I've also been to Level 21 (Telekom Malaysia) to collect my 'smartphone' which I won thru GoldQuest organised by the now-defunct Metrovision.

As a coin collector (not the serious type lah), I've also been to the Bank Negara Numismatic Museum!

Ha..ha...at least my guess was the correct one but the museum is not that big right ?

Great pic baq! It looks so massive in contrast to its surroundings. At least it has a unique shape and is unlikely to be forgotten

errr......I think Zahirnya hasn't been there before therefore he's askin bout it........I am the one whom had been there many times.

The BNM museum is really nice and much larger than Maybank's. What year you went there? I was there in 1993!
