The Urban Museum or Ur-Mu for short, is a one-of-a-kind, private contemporary art museum. Ur-Mu is a purpose-built contemporary art museum that features selected artworks and eclectic objects across 10 Themed Gallery Spaces, named Sens-Asia, People, Kampung Kita, Power Play, Raksasa(Monster), Superheroes, Framing Modernity, Structure, Made’s Garden and Sculpture Lounge from the collection of a private art patron. Located in the prosperous lifestyle district known as the Golden Triangle with its many large retail malls, hotels and restaurants. Ur-Mu is nestled in the bohemian sector comprising quaint residential streets with low-rise 1950’s modernist-style architecture. Somewhat forgotten over the years has found new vibes in music, food, entertainment and now the arts.
Ur-Mu is a passion project by an award-winning, accomplished architect and maverick of sorts, who is an avid art enthusiast. Ur-Mu’s founder started acquiring artworks since the 1980s whilst studying Architecture at Deakin University in Geelong, Australia which has grown into a notable collection of Malaysian and regional works over the years.
