    How do I go to your place via public transport? Is the MRT Bukit Bintang nearby? Which exit should I take? Any major landmarks?

      Hi sorry for the late response. We were closed on Sunday.
      Yes, you can take MRT to Bukit Bintang and choose exit to Pavilion heading toward KLCC Walkway,once you reach the walkway, take the escalator downward, turn right and you will see Hakka Restaurant in front of you, and cross the road, turn right you will see Bayan Tree on your left then Pullman Hotel. Continue walking pass the 8Conlay site then you will see white colonial bungalow house. This will be a Heritage Center office of Badan Warisan Malaysia.

    HI. I’m attending the The Wet Plate Collodion: A Demonstration of a Historical Photographic Process workshop. If I’m bringing my family (kids) along, is there any place for them to hang around at the Badan Warisan until the workshop end?

      Hi, Firdaus.

      We’re so glad you’re joining us this Saturday. Your kids are welcome to observe the demonstration with you (or read a book), as long as they don’t disrupt the event. Unfortunately we don’t have the manpower or space for further provisions.

      Thank you for checking though. 🙂
