Chinese History Museum

This Chinese History Museum was officially opened by the Assistant Minister for Culture, Youth and Sports, YB. Alfred Yap Chin Loi on the 23rd October 1993. The building itself is historic and was built in 1912. It was used as a court by the Chinese community from 1912 to 1921.
