Miri City’s First Cultural Museum

Renovations on the Miri Resident’s and District office building have begun to transform it into a museum.

The project is currently being headed by the Sarawak Museum Department’s curator, Dayang Norzanah Awang Haddy, who has explained that the first and second phases of the project, which are the renovations on the front and back part of the building respectively, are running smoothly.

This museum will be the second in the city, the first being the Miri Petroleum Museum located on top of Canada Hill, which focuses solely on the development of Miri surrounding the petroleum industry.

This will be the first Museum in the city that shows the historical culture, art and heritage of the different races in Miri.
