Kuala Lumpur’s Upside Down House is here!

It’s open! The first Upside Down House has made its way to Kuala Lumpur after the success of similar attractions in the likes of Malacca and Penang!

The entrance to the Upside Down House is this rather attractive car!

We were there yesterday with friends who were over visiting from Singapore and I really wanted to go and see what it was all about. Having not been to any of the other Upside Down Houses/Museums here in Malaysia, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but, unfortunately, I have to say I was a little disappointed.

Plenty of photo opportunities outside, and the house looks great!

Everything looks great from the outside but once inside, the house is very small. Going downstairs to the (upstairs!) bedroom there was just the one room there with very poor lighting so you really couldn’t get any decent photos.

Looking up at an upside down bedroom!

We then returned to where we came in where you get a bathroom, kitchen/dining room, a nursery and a parents bedroom and while the set-up really is extremely well executed with everything (including the furniture) hanging from the ceiling, we were really disappointed that the children were too small to really be able to interact with the scenes in order to get funny photos.

Trying to pose for photos and managing this!

Anyway, on the positive side, it looks great from the outside with a colourful upside down car at the entrance and everything, including signage, also being the wrong way up! The house itself, as well as the gardens, were pretty and made for some nice photos but overall I wouldn’t put it on a KL to-do-list or go back for a second visit.

Not sure we pulled this one off but it does vaguely look like my two are coming down from the ceiling… maybe?!

So while it’s not big and you don’t need to spend hours there, it is the latest attraction to hit the city and is well located at the KL Tower. If you’re in the area and want to see the whole upside down concept then I would suggest going now while they have their special opening promo rate! From now until August, Malaysian citizens and MyKad holders can enter for only 15RM/10RM per adult/child respectively which makes it fairly inexpensive!

I love the idea of this photo and my son ‘doing a handstand’ on the bookshelves but the lighting was a real let down.

I managed to get a few shots of my little gymnasts doing handstands on bookshelves and climbing down into kitchen cupboards (well, that’s what it looks like!) but you’ll have to get your creative hat on to get the most out of the experience as I found it really difficult to take photos there!! Good luck and enjoy,

For us, the best place for photos was outside! The big colourful house and car, blue skies, and gardens to explore!
