“History of Chinese in East Malaysia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Photography is not allowed but there is plenty to see and learn about the diverse ethnic Chinese who first populated the area. Brookes encouraged the third wave of Chinese migration. Interesting building located along the riverside.

“Quaint attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

This museum, which used to be the Chinese Court during the early 1900s, provides a glimpse of the roles that the early Chinese community play in the development of Sarawak.

“Worth popping in”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

The location on the waterfront is ideal to just pop in and have a look around, though opening times can be a little vague. Give it a try as you go past, as there are some seriously historic items for Sarawak in there.
