I brought my children to visit Cat Museum. It stated @DBKU hall in Petra Jaya. It open daily. Free entry. If u wanna take photo u must pay only rm3 per camera. It quit interesting to bring children who loves cat like my babies 😘😘. Very recommended if u wanna know about types of 'kucing' cats.

This museum is a attraction point to visit in the Kuching. You will get to know the family of cats and its history. It is the good education places for the children.

Its a pretty strange and random place, a bit tired, dirty and dark but fun none the less. Just an FYI the sticker they give you to put on your phone is super sticky and may leave residue. Good fun tho, a cool building and view over the city.

If you look for a museum or activity never done in your life visit this funky place. Honestly there is nothing worthy to see these cat artifacts all kitsch and stupid ... Except maybe a very few but not sure they are real antiques as the mess of the museography is mixing a old Chinese artifact near a bag of... More

A museum with every conceivable depiction of cats, from cultures all over the world as well and also from contemporary media such as Garfield. Interesting for cat fans, but it's not laid out in any particularly interesting way, so while it can be fun to wander through hundreds of cat statues, figurines, and paintings, the museum could be improved. Still,... More

We were asked to surrender our phones and camera at the entrance if we don't pay, but there is no locker for us to lock our phone in. We were not going to just surrender our phone to them just like that! we were told Or else we cannot enter the museum! What a joke! My fiery sister will not... More

Looks like the museum has seen better days, and the collection is what I would describe as eclectic to down right bizarre (eg a hello kitty display through to movies with cats). But if you're having a lazy day it might still be a family day out.

It is a totally unique and different museum. It is free of charge, you just need to pay for camera or phone camera if you want. It shows a collection of cats paintings, crafts, human memories with cats, souvenirs and so much more. It is a must-go place if happen to be in Kuching. It represents The Kuching town the... More
