“Small but comprehensive and interesting”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

As a chinese descendant, I highly recommend this place as it is well maintained and the exhibits are detailed and easy to understand.I love the section where they introduced sarawak chinese origins and their dialects. Look for a little button at the board and press it to listen to different dialects of chinese. I find it very interesting ^_^

“Fascinating Flashback of the Kuching Chinese”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Worth a visit. It can be as short as a 15 minutes' visit or a long one hour plus detailed tour around the well maintained museum. Every audio presentation of the different Chinese dialects worked perfectly. Personally, I was very impressed with the museum with short but precise notes of the community contribution to Kuching. Entrance is free of charge.

“Insight into the role of the Chinese community in Kuching”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. Like other reviewers I thought the explanation of how the Chinese came to Sarawak and their different roles in the community was very well done. I enjoyed the big wall map of present day Kuching which marks Chinese businesses. It was fun to walk down Carpenter Street and realise that many of the shops are run by Chinese.

“Worth a quick visit”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

A very small but interesting museum. Another good use of an old building. Helped me understand how different the Chinese dialects and peoples are. How hard they all worked to gain a better life!
