As its names imply, the museum is dedicated to the youth of Malaysia. Among the museum exhibits are documents, information and paraphernalia related to local and international activities of various Malaysian youth organizations. Photographs of past and present youth leaders, uniforms worn by members, awards and trophies received, and handicrafts made by members of youth organizations and youth co-operatives are all displayed at the museum.

Adults: RM1.00
