It is a cat museum... just cats. All about cats. Nothing too interesting here, but perhaps would be great for cat lovers.

A must for any cat lover visiting Kuching. free entry just a small charge for camera. Only had 1 hour to go round, could have spent much longer there. A true work of dedication and passion for cats.

Sadly, we didnot want to go here but it was part of our package deal with Cultural village. It is super bizarre and unnecessary product on so many levels. I guess this is only for cat lovers but even some of them were in deep...More
