Last Saturday on the 1st of June our lecturer has organized a class trip class to the National Bank Museum here in Kuala Lumpur to work on our research for the upcoming project that is related to the bank artifact. There were many interesting things to explore surprisingly as I wasn't expecting it to be interesting as it was a museum, but after seeing how the exterior looks like, i take back what I said about it being boring and uninterested.
|The Numismatics Gallery|
We first visited the Numismatics Gallery due to the fact it is related to our upcoming project.

And besides of just seeing images of the trading coins in the history book, I'm able to see the real object right in front of me. Overall it's a very inviting experience due to the fact I'm impress with its modern architecture design and how the artifact was arrange neatly. Yes, the information was presented not only using traditional format with is displaying it, they also make use of modern technology to convey the message to the visitor.
