In 1974, the construction of the existing Klang Hokkien Association building commenced and it was fully completed in 1977. In 1981, the side corridors of the 2nd floor had been renovated and well equipped for exhibiting purposes.

巴生福建会

成立于1904年, 是巴生华团领导机构之一。会馆的宗旨为发挥互助精神,推 社会慈善福利工作,促进文化教育事业,促进各民族亲善与团结

1905年,巴生福建馆除了获得乡贤捐献两段土地供兴建最初之福建公所和开辟福建义山,也筹款兴办教育。1912年,巴生中华学校在福建公所内上课,为期7年。1918年,福建公所曾因涉及与英国人的纠纷而被殖民地政府关闭3年,直到1921年,获从新注册,改名为闽南公所。第二次世界大战后,由于认为闽南这个名称不能代表全福建省的同乡于一体,于是在194759经会员大会通过,改名为福建会

现址大厦是于1974动工兴建,于1977竣工,并于1977815日成立73周年纪念日举行开幕典礼。会馆大厦建于联邦大道旁。前部为四层楼办公大楼,后部为冷气大礼堂。办公大楼内设有秘书处,议事厅,婚姻注册局,贵宾室,会议室,图书馆与资讯中心,大讲堂,画廊与文化艺术走廊及24节令鼓中心。由于地点理想,会馆林笃水冷气大礼堂,羽球场及讲堂经常出租予其他社团或业机构作为活动场地。

巴生福建会 - 巴生画廊

宗旨为發揚健康文化藝術、提供書畫及手工藝品等之陳列或展出場所。

1981巴生福建会將二樓兩旁闢為巴生畫廊。畫廊的成立,為藝術家和本地畫壇提供一個良好的展覽空間,推動書畫藝術,同時提高公眾的鑑賞水平。隨著經濟不景氣,畫廊停止活動二十多年。2002年,會館重開畫廊,作為推廣書畫藝術的先鋒。復辦畫廊的計劃獲得大力支持,並裝飾及增設畫廊設備。除了本地畫家的作品,畫廊籌委會亦常邀請國外書畫家到此參展,促進藝術交流
