“It was okay”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We were going past and it was free so we popped in to have a look. If you are going along the waterfront why not make a visit to learn how the Chinese settled in the area.

“Musing in the museum”
Reviewed 6 July 2014


This small museum offered a welcome respite from the heat of the day.Just off the Esplanade, it is accessible and well-presented. Well worth a visit with English presentations as well as Chinese texts. We spent some time here.
Free.

Loved how accessible the information was and the variety about the different Chinese settlers. A good length and good depth of information.

“Interesting little museum”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

I popped into the museum as a rest bite from the heat and was pleasantly surprised. Lots of interesting facts about the Chinese, their history and culture in Sarawak. Worth a look

“Historical Gem”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Accidentally ran across this little gem on a walk through Chinatown. Although small, and sometimes small is good, it was very informative. Had a short film (in English and Chinese) at the beginning which gave a nice potted history of how the Chinese came to Sarawak. A really interesting interactive section on the musical instruments was also good. Really enjoyed it.. And the air conditioning
