  • Nice little museum smack middle at Kuching waterfront, an hour is all you need here
  • This museum is entrance FREE! It’s located by the waterfront and you can head in and have a look of the Chinese history of Sarawak/ Malaysia. I really like the simplicity and size of this free museum. About 10 mins to look around and take some pictures.
