“Great insight into the early chinese settlers in Sarawak”
Review of Chinese Museum

Chinese Museum
Ranked #7 of 92 things to do in Kuching
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Great thing about this museum is that you can have information on how the early chinese settlers came in Sarawak and for what reason. There is also a short video on this as well. The building is just in front of the Riverfront.

One thing is that the place or building is just too small.

It's small, describes the different Chinese ethnic groups that have arrived over the years, and what trades/way-of-life they are associated with. Not much is lost by skipping the "important political figures" at the beginning. Like all museums here, its free

It is on the waterfront at the top of Main Bazaar, and worth a dive into, especially if you are hot.

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 ^_^

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.
