Sarawak Museum, Kuching: 25 reviews and 53 photos

  The old building
by bumpychick

This museum was completed in 1891 and holds a collection of Bornean ethnological and archaeological artifacts reputed to be the best in South East Asia.
The ground floor of the museum houses a large number of stuffed animals, many of which are looking rather faded but are still interesting if one is not familiar with the wildlife of Borneo. The first floor has a very good reproduction of a long house through which you can walk.
No photography is allowed. Admission free.
Out the back of the museum is a small aquarium, which is worth a look if you have time.
