Royal Malaysian Police Museum

Website : Entry Fee  : Free Google Maps Link  : Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) Museum is located in Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur.

Next to the aircraft was a Oerlikon 20MM II SS naval gun, used by the marine police and was retired in 1998. There also a few types of cannons and armoured vehicles used during the British colonial era in 1940s and 50s.  Oerlikon 20MM II SS - Naval Gun British Cannon Type HMW 38 Year 1917 - Used to guard the Sg Petani Police Station in 1940  Fort Lynx Scout Car BB 8128 - During the Em
