"Chinese History Museum" Chinese History Museum Tip by zuyao

Chinese History Museum, Kuching: 11 reviews and 23 photos


The museum is housed in an old court house previously used by the Chinese community to administer their legal matters. The museum was largely funded by the community with most exhibits being contributed by the public. It is a small museum but gives a detailed depiction of the various Chinese dialect groups in Sarawak, their origins, lifestyle and customs.

The caretaker is a talkative and friendly man who is willing to share with you his take on the Chinese community of Sarawak.

Entrance is free (donation is encouraged). Open everyday from 0900 - 1630 hrs except on first day of public holidays.

Address: Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman
Directions: Just by the waterfront, opposite Tua Pek Kong Temple.
