Definitely worth a visit. Very informative information about the Chinese settlement in Kuching. We learnt quite a lot. Some of the computer systems were down which was a shame.

Located on the banks of the river adjacent to the Bazaar. Small but very well done and a very informative overview of the Chinese contribution to the development of Sarawak to this day. Free entry and quite informative.
