The drive up and the building itself is fantastic, however, the museum seems stuck in time in the 1970's. It's a funny quirky little place, with every cat and cat fact humanly possible and definitely worth a visit whilst in Kuching. In theory its free entry but I paid RM4 to take photo's and I think it's a little more... More

Weird but worth a look. Felix the cat seems to be missing but I may have missed it.There are literally thousands of cat related memorabilia.

This is probably the strangest museum we've ever visited, cats, cats and more cats. They come in wood, china, stuffed,silk, wool and probably every other material ever invented but it was enjoyable and we came out with a big smile on our faces. Entrance is free but you do pay for camera's, video's etc. You could stretch the visit out... More

We dropped by the cat museum on our way back from the Damai Beach resort. Plenty of cat related information as well as things related to the city itself. Very interesting displays would have taken hours to view but our young children could only wait around for an hour.

This is an interesting place for cat lovers but not a must see. You learn a lot about cats in general and about Borneo cats. It is an enjoyable way to spend half an hour

we enjoyed our visit to this establishment, It is very kitsch but an enjoyable afternoon out. There is a coffee shop and souvenirs. The view are worthwhile as it is up on a hill.

A good place to drop by only if you are a cat lover and if you are interested in cats. A few exhibits and write-ups on cats in history and in various cultures but could appear abit disjointed to some as there are a substantial number of cat artifacts.

within the premises of northern city government office. takes about half an hour as it is a very small museum with not much display. just watch the "cats" when you are at "cat city"

Entering the museum, we walk through, what I would describe as a giant cat mouth/ head. Here is where I know this is going to be one very interesting museum. Entry to the museum is free, but there is a small fee to pay for photography, and there is no way I'm passing up on this opportunity. You enter a... More
