Sarawak State Museum, Kuching Reviews

  • I have been lucky enough to have visited so many national museums throughout the world mainly in Europe and in my humble, no prejudicial opinion, this is the most interesting museum in the world. It has so many artifacts, you really need at least 2 days to take your time browsing through the numerous artifacts and that does not include the modern era museum next door. I have visited this place twice on 2 separate occasions and am still not satisfied...I need more time. Oh I love to visit this place again.

  • A wonderful place where you can learn about the history, traditions, religion of Sarawak. The exhibitions are very interesting and they also have some nice movies. Free entrance.

  • Small but very well organize museum. A big part of it is under renovation but by what I have seen we can only expect it to be a good one

  • Scenery is great, you can take great pictures here. A lot of things that you can learn here esp about the people and their beliefs. Interesting.

  • Entrance free & located in the heart of Kuching were very first good conditions for me to choose visit this museum. And I do enjoy it. It introduce an interesting culture. Even showing the short movie to explain clearer. Strong recommend to explore in city
