A small museum along the waterfront, depicting the history of the Chinese immigrants in Sarawak. Informative and interesting, it is worth a visit. Free entrance and it is air-conditioned.

This place is worth dropping in for a quick look if you happen to be passing by. It was in the same vicinity as our hotel and the riverfront. Some interesting pieces and display but nothing to shout about.

This museum is worth a look. It gives a good description of the Chinese influence here. They don't allow photo unfortunately
