  • It’s a nice museum, but sadly it is temporary close if there is an important events taking place there. πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸ› But I am glad that this place is still in good condition. πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›1️⃣8️⃣9️⃣0️⃣ All artificial and everything in that old museum is moving to the new museum that is more larger. πŸ›πŸ›πŸ› This building have been around for a very long time. πŸ›πŸ›πŸ› The last time visiting this place was 2015 or 2016. πŸ₯Ή
  • Opened to public on 9/3/2022, visitors intending to enter have to submit an online booking application first before allowed entrance. This is only temporary as a fee will be imposed after three months. This is a must go attraction for visitors to Kuching as most displays are interactive. It is rich in history and information on the the cultures and peoples of Sarawak.
