Cat Museum, Kuching Reviews

  • Been here many years ago . That time it was still new. Plenty of cats statues . They are interesting, fascinating and really cute to look at. Some paintings of cats are beautiful. The venue is very clean and well laid out. I think it's cosy. I don't know now, how is the condition there. It would be a pity if it's not maintained well. This is an interesting place to bring children to and for cats lovers as well. Personally, I don't fancy cats so much though😊 , still I fancy this place.

  • Pretty cool. Lots of statues and cat figurines. All things cats displayed including Garfield. Entry was free unless you want to take your phone, which was 3rm. Good views of the surrounds outside as it was built on an elevation.

  • A must visit for all cat lovers. All things cat related are displayed here. There's a good view of Kuching city from the museum.

  • A display of cats inside the muzium. The view outside the building is very beautiful. Located at top of hill. Parking lot no problem here coz not many visitor come to the muzium. The building well managed and very clean. Good for family trip.

  • Quite a disappointing visit to the musuem itself as it was just filled with cat posters and statues. It would be much better if it's like a cat cafe where u can play with real life cats. However, as it's located at the top of a hill, u will get an outstanding view of Kuching and the view was not disappointing.
