Sarawak Museum - Old wing:
This is a museum in the old style. Many of the exhibits were donated or originated in the early days of the 20th century, and look like they have achieved a great deal of mileage since. The natural history displays are original and unique and there is much by the way of historic and ancient artifacts. While this museum might not be as trendy as the modern new wave of "experiential" entertainment centers one gets the impression that the museum deserves a special preservation itself .. It could be put into a museum itself.
Sarawak Museum - New wing:
The new wing is just across the road, by a overhead walkway, from the old wing,, and well worth a stroll. This museum is in slightly better condition than its elder member, and features exhibitions of more an ethnic and Malaysian historic nature. The interesting exhibition here is the passing over display 'Depart in Style' of the different approaches to death and its mourning in the diverse communities of Sarawak.
