Sarawak State Museum, Kuching Reviews - Write a Review

  • The museum is right in the city centre. If you are first time to Sarawak, this is the perfect place to learn about the rich history of Sarawak from the era of Brunei's rule and subsequent Brooke's rule (AKA the white rajahs). Also in display is the stories of diverse tribal groups. The monolith outside the stadium is one of its kind in Sarawak featuring local tribal design.

  • its free and feels like it. Pity as the local history is so interesting. Great masks

  • Aircond is broken. Its quite hot inside. But the outside scenery is good and refreshing

  • This place is fascinating. Enjoyed my time! 👍

  • **Please note that it will be closing for renovations for 2 years.** Interesting museum close to city centre, with free entry.
