Muzium Kafe is a family business owned by One Glory SA Venture registered under the Companies Commission of Malaysia. It is a combination of a restaurant and a museum.

Each section of the café introduces its own category of Malaysian history, which includes the sultans, heroes of Malaya, the prime ministers and a special room known as "Bilik Diraja" for VIPs.

Muzium Kafe owner Mohamad Shafiq Amin Arif said not many people understood the concept and he wanted them to learn and appreciate Malaysian history in a relaxing and enjoyable way.

"The main idea of opening a museum café like this is to educate the people of Malaysia, especially the youngsters, on the history of our sultans and rulers of Malaya so that they will have a better understanding of the history as well as respect for the royal institution.

"We want the people to enjoy learning the history of our country as well as to enjoy the leisure services we offer," he said. – Bernama, February 19, 2016.
