Designed by Arthur Benison Hubback in an Indo-Saracenic Revival architecture, the building was originally completed in 1905 to house the headquarters for the Federated Malay States Railways (FMSR, now KTM). After the FMSR moved to the Railway Administration Building in 1917, the building was handed to the Selangor Public Works department, and has subsequently housed various government and commercial occupants, including the Selangor Water Department, the Malaysian Central Bank, Agricultural Bank of Malaysia, Malaysian Craft and the High Court, before being converted for use as the National Textile Museum and opened to the public on 9 January 2010.
The building is officially designated as JKR Building 26. It was gazetted as a historical building in 1983.
The museum building is a 2.5-floor building, occupying an area of 3,145.3 m2.
