The Sabah Museum was built in 1985 and is located on the site of the official residence of the British government. The museum complex includes the main building, science and education center, cultural village, Sabah Gallery and Islamic Civilization Museum. The main building adopts the shape of Longus Longhouse, and the beams extending outward on the roof resemble Suma Shao dancers with outstretched arms. If you want to learn more about Sabah’s rich history, society and natural history, this is a great place. In addition, the cultural village near the main body of the museum is quite distinctive. It mimics the traditional residential characteristics of the aborigines in Sabah. Many houses are built. Visitors can enter every room and hall to explore and explore. There are even real people demonstrating living, working and using tools. .
This was actually an excellent museum. It has some great pictures of KK from the 1950s, showing how the waterfront was extended out of the reef. It then has some great exhibits on Sabah from went it was ruled by the Sultan of Brunei and then the Sultan of Sulu to the concessions made for logging and trade, and then the hard period it went through during World War II when the Japanese brutally occupied it. Some great artifacts and videos in there. It also has a pretty cool natural history museum on the upper level. The gardens are not that great, but there is a very cool suspension bridge over the pond you should check out.
Tickets here vary from person to person. For us tourists, regardless of whether they are adults or children, they are 15 MYR per person. When I entered the door, I saw the skeleton of a huge whale. It was 15 meters long. It was very complete. The big lower jaw was scary enough. We all said that four people can rub mahjong together in its belly. It is said that this is Sabah. The treasure of the museum. The museum has air-conditioning, wifi, and a computer for self-searching and learning. It is comfortable to walk around slowly, but it is not allowed to take pictures, but only a few sneak shots. Here is an introduction to Sabah’s history, folklore, culture, flora and fauna, etc. It’s worth a visit. It’s just that we can only guess the meaning by looking at the pictures. The dozens of vintage cars are displayed outside the museum. That Rolls-Royce is very aura!
