Chinese History Museum


The building was built in 1912 and is located at the Kuching Waterfront. Originally, it was used as a court by the Chinese community until 1921. After that, the building was taken over by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

In 1993, this historic building was transformed into the Chinese History Museum. Currently, the museum serves as a source of information on the history of various Chinese communities. It aims to educate the younger generation to appreciate the struggles and the core values developed by their ancestors.
