Miri Petroleum Museum


Petroleum Museum is located at Bukit Tenaga (previously known as Bukit Kanada). Being the first oil well in Sarawak, the Grand Old Lady was build in 1910.

The Petroleum Museum in Miri is situated on top of Power Hill, formerly known as Canada Hill. This museum was officially opened to the public in 2005 and was inaugurated by the then Chief Minister of Sarawak, and now the Governor of Sarawak, Tun Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud.
