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.
