The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) Museum at Jalan Perdana in Kuala Lumpur, which was initially a store used to keep exhibits from criminal cases for training of police trainees, now holds the treasures and glorious history of the more than 200-year-old police force.

The museum, which was opened on Jan 9,1961 by the third Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Putra Ibni Almarhum Syed Hassan Jamalullail, keeps various artefacts, including a more than 300-year-old British-made flint-lock pistol and 500-year-old Portuguese coins.
