Muar District is a district in the state of Johor, Malaysia. The name "Muar" is also used for the name of its district, which formerly sub-divided between the Town of Muar and the sub-district of Tangkak. Tangkak sub-district has been upgraded into a full district known as Ledang District in year 2008. Muar district formerly borders Malacca on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Upon the upgrading of Ledang District, the Muar District now covers only the area on the southern portion of Muar River, whilst the northern side is now within Ledang District. However, both administrative regions are still collectively called Muar by their residents.

Muar District formerly covers 2346.12 km2, with a population of 328,695 (2000). The name originated from the word Muara or estuary in Malay.
