  • Although tiny by museum standards, this is a great place to spend a couple of hours. This is where the history of Kuching seems to be explained by the detailed exhibits and information. Well worth a v...  more »

  • Good museum, free entrance, lots of information. Tells the story of the Chinese immigration into Sarawak. I liked the last section best with info on cultural traditions - arts, religion, festivals etc. None of the sound buttons were working, and the middle section with biographies of important figures is incredibly dry, but overall the museum is interesting and valuable. Worthy visiting definitely.
  • Nice museum without entrance fee. It's very well done, but don't expect an abundance of information. It gives a basic overview of Chinese immigration to Borneo and their traditions. Some buttons didn't work, I think they were supposed to start audios of different Chinese dialects.
  • Chinese history in Sarawak. Good for us to gain knowledge. Entrance is free.
  • Good place to know the Chinese roots & ancestor originated... Yes must visit place
  • To know Chinese different Chinese immigrants and culture.
