The Story

The old exchange building in Bukit Nanas is located at the intersection of Jalan Gereja and Jalan Raja Chulan over the age of 82 years (1928-2010) was declared a historic landmark by the National Archives of Malaysia Negara. As such, the building was used as a telecommunications museum by Malaysia’s premier. This three-storey building provides an excellent museum exhibit space and features an impressive history.

This institution is a commitment by Telekom Malaysia (TM) as a major telecommunications company in the country to preserve the historical heritage of interest and roles throughout the industry for the country, people and economy. On April 14, 2005, Telekom Malaysia is known as the window opened towards a future vision that we enjoy today. The museum is also a historical legacy for the enjoyment of locals and tourists alike.
