Chanteek Borneo Indigenous Museum, Tuaran

#3 of 9 in Things to do in Tuaran
Specialty Museum · Museum
Chanteek Borneo Gallery houses close to 300 traditional costumes from all over Malaysia especially from Sabah (North Borneo). Some, would most likely face extinction soon due to advances in technology and globalisation.

We re-create the costumes and displays in miniatures so as to get our children to fall in love with our roots. We preserve what is almost lost, to retain our identity.

Here, you will get the chance to know the people of Borneo, closer!
