Sarawak State Museum, Kuching Reviews

  • The main building is still renovated without due date. Maybe completed in next century. The exhibition side is okay. Free of charge.

  • Very interesting exhibits on Sarawak and its natural history! We came during renovations so we didn't get to enjoy the whole venue, but we enjoyed the exhibits that were open and will definitely visit again if we come back.

  • A good introduction to the history of Sarawak with many photos and audios. There is also¬† a 15 minutes documentary you watch it as you enter. Entry is free.

  • The European style building is beautiful. Local staff is unprofessional nowadays, needs better training

  • Exhibits are well curated - not just a random collection of objects. Museum is well maintained- outside looks old but the inside is very clean and up to date.
