  • Nice place to visit. Have an experience to know the history of Kuching and its culture here!! Staff is nice and friendly. Can buy a souvenir too!!

  • 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.
