    Something different - massive collection of cat replica of various sizes.
    Situated on top of a hill.
    Minimal entrance fee and museum is smallish located in a government building that look like a spacecraft.

    Informative way to quickly understand the history of Borneo. The counties. Power struggles. And of course all the inside scoop on culture and terrain.

    My husband and I loved it. Clean. Professional. Slick. Interactive. Interesting.

    Floor dedicated to kids. People over 61 are half price. Closes at 430 - so you’d need to be there by 3 to see most of it. Lots of videos.

    Walkable from ‘downtown’

    This place is architecturally pleasing. There is a decent small museum and places to eat and drink. This is opposite the waterfront.

    If you are looking to have loads of fun, this is the right place to stop by. Suitable for children, the young and young at heart. My daughter(29) and I enjoyed ourselves so much. We had loads of cool pictures to share with family and friends.

    The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly, they assisted us on how to pose for the best pictures. I had reservations at first but they were super helpful and immediately put us at ease. They attended to us throughout the 2 hrs we were there.

    You'd be lucky to have the whole place to yourselves but even if there are other couples or groups, everyone would be having too much fun to feel shy. The best is, there is no time limit for the amount you pay, so go ahead, get clicking and enjoy youselves!

    Efficiently curated exhibition of the Ranee Margaret of Sarawak which impressed on the highly talented lady who brought finesse and education and adapted it to the Malay society of Kuching then. Her documentation of her life in Sarawak is precious.

    Great mall - feels new & clean. Good selection of shops. Good food court. We got our hotel to call us a taxi there as it's a fair way from the Riverfront. What we didn't know - is that taxi numbers have dropped from about 1,000 - to less than 50 now. Because we didn't get him to wait for us, we had a big problem getting back to the town. Terribly hot outside, no taxis, ended up walking across the walkway over the road & sitting in a bus stop - hoping that eventually a bus would come. It did - about 20 minutes later.

    if you are interested in textiles and ethnographic handicrafts there are some quietly stunning pieces in here. Plenty of info in English and well set out. Just a small exhibition. Count on about 45 minutes to see it. Free entry as are the other museums in town.

    Ordered a piece of furniture (a bench) from them to be dispatched internationally by sea. They carefully took my order and gave an estimated time of arrival. The package was expectedly late (its 2020 and coronavirus is everywhere), but when I got the package everything was in order and neatly packed. Not a scratch or anything in sight. Dont be afraid to shop with them!

    I spent an hour viewing the exhibits, and it was fascinating to learn about the significance of the intricate patterns in the handwoven textile.

    Was here for the holidays with the family and I must say that this area is quite lively. The outer structure of the mall looks like the nest stadium in china. There are many things to see and buy. There is a cinema here which makes it more entertaining. But aside from this, the mall is on an average scale which makes it fairly boring after couple of hours. There are also a limited restaurants (whether in the food court or outside) which makes you want to go elsewhere.
