Selangor’s first stamp museum to be ready by 2026

Construction of a stamp museum in Section 14, Shah Alam, Selangor has been experiencing delays.

Selangor housing and culture committee chairman Borhan Aman Shah said progress of the state’s first stamp museum was at 65% and the project was expected to be completed by 2026.

He said despite construction delays, work was ongoing and he was monitoring the progress.

“The museum was scheduled to be ready by this year, but the project’s construction progress was disrupted during the implementation of the movement control order in 2020/2021 due to a manpower shortage,” he told Bernama.

“The Public Works Department is also monitoring the progress,” he added.

Borhan said several technical issues also contributed to the delay, adding that contractors had been warned to complete works as stipulated.

Previously, Borhan was reported as saying the state government would open three new museums early this year to continue efforts to preserve and document Selangor’s history, heritage and culture.

Besides the Stamp Museum, two other museums that are scheduled to open include the Selangor Art Gallery in Shah Alam and Textile Museum in Klang.

Borhan also touched on progress of renovation works at Sultan Alam Shah Museum in Section 14, which he said was expected to reopen to the public in August.

The museum had been closed since 2019 for upgrades to its galleries, namely the History Gallery, Custom and Culture Gallery as well as Nature Gallery.
