“Strictly kitschy but a good quick trip to pass time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

I spent quite a bit of time in Kuching, which advertises itself as "cat city" everywhere, so it was hard to resist the 'cat museum'. There's nothing very eorable about it - just a lot of kitschy catty stuff, but it's a pleasant enough way to pass a hot morning hour or so.

“cat musem, kuching”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

worth a visit if you have the time, as it's free, and interesting: weird, odd, and unlike any other museum. but if you miss it, it's not the end of the world.

“Good fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

A quirky little museum which is a must see when in Kuching. So different to anything you would experience elsewhere. Great to see the government putting funding into an attraction like this. Pleasant way to spend an hour or so and escape the heat. Fantastic views over the city.

“Not bad for me”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

It is a museum all about the cat. You will love this place if you are a cat lover, or you love drawing, or you love history. There are many drawing about cats, from China, Japan, Europe, etc. Also the history of cats, from Egypt, Middle Ages, etc.

However, you will need to pay if you want to take photo/video in the museum.
