Sarawak is set to be the location of Malaysia’s biggest museum in 2020!

According to the Borneo Post, the Sarawak Museum Campus is currently under construction and will open its doors to the public in September 2020. Located in its capital, Kuching, the museum will house hundreds of historical artefacts and will officially be declared the second biggest museum in Southeast Asia, with five levels and a total floor space of about 31,000 square metres.

The project was previously estimated to have cost around RM308 million. State Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah was quoted by the daily as saying,

“As you all know, this is going to be the pride of all Sarawakians. I have been repeating that we will not be selling Sarawak as a shopping paradise, but we will sell Sarawak for its heritage, environment and all that. This is where the role of museums is partly important.”

“That is why I believe the state government embarked on a construction of a very big museum, which is the second largest in South East Asia.”

This museum will also have pedestrian links to the old Sarawak Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Art Museum, making everything more interconnected.

The Sarawak Museum Campus was designed by a group of principal architects, led by Dato’ Sri Ar John Lau Kah Sieng, Sarawak’s first architect, who has undertaken major projects in Africa, Hong Kong, China, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, and of course, Malaysia.

Photos of the museum have since begun to circulate on social media, and netizens are amazed by the sheer scale of its structure.
