Kuching is kucing(cat) without a 'h' , it is literally a cat's town. Its all about cats, everything in the museum is related to cat, you got to love cat a lot to like this place. Admission is free and the building which housed the museum in on top of a hill, can see from here Kuching city across Sarawak... More

I could not stop laughing at this museum, you have to take it with a pinch of salt. It's not very informative but very kitsch! The wall of hologram cats was so funny. Nice light break from the seriousness of kuching

Entrance free, to pay for camera and mobile for photos. Was looking forward to the muzeum as kids wanted to see the cats. Dimly lighted. Bright spots are the aquarium and souvenir counter. Did not managed to visit the Sarawak history section.

So many items on display, need some time to really read the synopsis or notes about the items. The only complaint is that the exhibits are not housed in non-reflective glass cases, so may have reflection while taking photographs. Admission is free.

Never in my life have I been to a museum devoted to cats. It's very interesting and you'll leave with a heightened fascination for these cute creatures.

Cats, cats, and cats, what else would you expect? Perfect for cat lovers! We had a really great time, but at the time we visited there were schoolchildren and they were very noisy..good visit nevertheless.

It is everything that its name suggests. Think of the word 'cat' and throw in everything you can relate, that is what this museum is. It has a very big collection of cat-related objects. Also many statues providing ridiculous photo opportunities. If you are a cat person, or if you want to mock the cat person in your friendship group,... More

Glad we decided to stop over and see the cat Museum. The building itself is very architectural but the inside was just meh. Meaning, the displays were good for housing items. The only thing they could have improved is the lay out of all the cat figurines they had. I am a cat lover to an extent, and for me,... More

Okay, the location is quite far from city and there really isn't much to see though as mostly it just dolls, statues, cards of cats. The only thing can valuable is the cat mummy.
