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.
