This is not a big museum but is unique and can be accessed by local but but you need to walk up a fairly steep hill.

Everything you want to know about cats. You must visit it. However keep your taxi driver with you as getting back is a pain. So quirky there is even an exhibit that has frisky cat food. GO for the wierdness of it

Very hot inside and nothing much but cats everywhere, by cats I mean all the statue, models and toys. Not a cat lover so it didn't impress me at all.

If you are cat lovers, in Sarawak and more free time, then you would love this museum. Inside here, you can take picture of different cat dolls, statues, stuff but life cats. And the photo taking, you need to certain amount, RM4 for camera. And view outside of the building is breathtaking too.

My recent trip to the muzeum (although I've been there many times before over the years) , I found out that we have to park our car outside the building instead of inside and walk a big round to the building entrance. Entrance is free but have to pay for a few ringgit for taking photos inside the cat muzeum... More

I only spent like 15 minutes in the museum. Nothing much to see unless your are really interested about cats. The display is not very attractive.

We were in Kuching for only 3 days. The second day, we went to Bako National Park and when we returned to Kuching City in the late afternoon, we were physically exhausted. Coincidentally, when we alighted at the bus terminal beside the Electra House building, we saw another bus departing for the Cat Museum and the Sarawak Cultural Village. The... More

I found this to be a very kitchy exhibition. There are some interesting parts to the museum but overall not worth the effort.
