One of the highlites of our visit to Kuching was to see this museum. What a wonderful experience! Admission to the museum was free & wel worth visiting. All credit must go to the local community in advancing this featured museum which took us well oer an hour to walk through, do not miss visiting!

This has to be seen to be believed! It is cat-tastic! Free admission but a little way out of town. A good way to spend an hour or so if it's raining or super humid.

It's free entry as long as you don't take photos so if you split an uber it is super cheap! Learnt some new interesting facts about cats and had a good laugh at the badly stuffed cats. If you have a couple hours to kill then why not!
