Right in the middle of town, we have a historical gem in the form of the Sarawak Museum. This grand old lady has been there ever since my existence began (Duh, it was established in 1888). It was started by the illustrious Brooke family, and their legacies continue to withstand the test of time. It houses an exceptional ethnographic collection, some good natural history displays and a section on the oil industry in Sarawak.
During WW2, the museum was put under the stewardship of a sympathetic Japanese officer. It's a good thing because the museum survived the war largely intact :)
Thats it for now folks. Adios.
