This museum was much nicer than we thought it would be. Beautiful and colourful dresses, knittings, fabrics from all over Sarawak, clothing items used for different customs. Great visit!

Lovely material, nice staff and gift shop. The displays and very good and you can 'get up close'. Spent 45/60 in the cool of a steamy day.

If you're interested in Asian textiles it is very good. It is nice to see some high quality preservation practises of textiles. Well managed site and free admission.
