This is a very small museum but worth visiting if you are interested in learning about the history of Chinese migration to Sarawak. There is no entrance fee.

Small museum with a good account of how and when the different Chinese dialect-groups landed in Sarawak, the different trades that they were involved in and their general influence in Sarawak. Situated right in the Waterfront area and free to visit.

An interesting museum that highlights the demographics and the contributions of the Chinese people in Sarawak. A small museum which you can finish in less than 30 minutes. Conveniently located in the Waterfront area.
