It is a very small building, but full of information about the Chinese in Sarawak. Suprisingly, it is very good and very interesting. It is just at the waterfront, so if you have time, just pop up and check out the different dialets of the Chinese in Sarawak

When you enter the museum there is fast history given about Malaysian Chinese, which makes you really understand the structure of the society... Beautiful ceramic/porcelain examples...
