“Very impressive”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

This museum offers a great amount of information about Sarawak, its history, its people and local flora and fauna. Also, the souvenir shop is really cool and the museum cafe serves great smoothies :)

“Average”

After a day of hot sun, at least here provides some air cond ( quite bad if compared to Chinese museum's air cond)

Shows some historic artifacts of ancient Sarawak back to British colonization.

“The Best Anthropological Museum in Asia”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

Nearly one hundred years old this museum is one of the best anthropological museums in Asia and the world. Borneo has the wonderful cultural heritage and enough ethnological material to collect. It is a must in Kuching

“Informative for those who are interested in history”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Free admission and the curator was very nice there.
it's a big dark on the inside but was well mantained. the aircon worked SUPER FINE after a hot day under the sun.

mostly about history about sarawak. and includes small models of the longhouses..

not bad if you have time to spare on your trip.
