The Tun Abdul Razak Memorial was opened in 1982 to commemorate the life and times of Tun Abdul Razak.
The Tun Abdul Razak Memorial was opened in 1982 to commemorate the life and times of Tun Abdul Razak who served as the second Prime Minister of Malaysia from 1970 - 1976. It is housed in the Sri Taman Building which was the official residence of Tun Abdul Razak from 1962 until his death in 1976. The building then turned into Tun Abdul Razak Memorial in order to remember all his good deeds and contributions to the country.
The memorial is divided into 2 sections:
The first section provides a biography on the man who was highly regarded as an effective administrator and known for his contributions to rural development and social justice. He was nicknamed 'The Father of Development'. This section contains many of his personal possessions including his collection of walking sticks, his favourite golf buggy and speed boat. Also gifts and souvenirs that he received in the course of his official duties. Interestingly, his bedroom and study have been preserved with their original 1960s/1970s furniture which must have been state-of-the-art when it was first purchased but now looks very outdated.
The second section is a collection of over 1500 materials concentrating on his activities and achievements while serving as a Minister and, later, as Prime Minister.
Opening Hours : Tuesday - Sunday (10am - 5.30pm)
