Originally built in 1891 to house and display arts and crafts of the indigenous people of Borneo, the Sarawak Museum has gained a reputation for having the single most comprehensive collection of Borneon artefacts to be found anywhere. After extensive extensions, the Sarawak Museum now straddles both sides of Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg, with both buildings connected by an overhead pedestrian bridge. The original 1891 building was designed in style of a Normandy town-house and was extended to its present structure in 1911. The new wing, just across the road, was built in the 1970s and has a reconstruction of life in the prehistoric Niah Caves. 

Sarawak Islamic Museum

The Sarawak Islamic Museum occupies the Maderasah, a concrete and brick building recognised as the only one of its kind in the state. Built in 1930 along Jalan P. Ramlee, it was originally meant as a college for higher Malay Studies. Today it is the first Islamic Museum to be established in South East Asia. It has seven galleries exhibiting Islamic artefacts from around the region and separate fascinating collections of old coins, weapons, costumes, pottery, textiles and jewellery from the Islamic world. This museum is located behind the new wing of the Sarawak Museum across the road.
