Cat Museum, Kuching Reviews - Write a Review
Great place to see and learn all about cats. Some displays aimed at younger visitors may hold their attention, but some displays may be a bit dry. However, overall an informative place to learn about cats in art, history, and in the lives of ordinary and famous people.
Cat lovers should come and visit. Mostly for knowledge. Live cats... emmmm🙏... none
This museum has a big collection of things with cats. Unfortunately it is in desperate need of a renovation. The exhibition style is dry and boring. I came on Sunday and the air conditioner was not functioning. The entrance is free but visitors who take photos will have to pay a small fee. I’m still puzzled over the rationale of charging visitors based on camera usage.
Entrance Fee : FREE It a museum not a zoo, so I not expect to see live cat as some expecting. Vast collection of cats statues, drawings and cats title in movies. Expecting cat mummies but it not available as the collection were borrowed from Egypt museum.
Great fun, and as weird as we were warned it would be!
