If you are into museums, visiting the State Museum should be in your bucket list when visiting Sabah.

Built in 1985, this Museum is where the British North Borneo Governor’s palace was once located. The Museum consists of the Main Building, Science and Education Centre and Heritage Village. The Main building, designed to resemble a Rungus longhouse, houses the permanent exhibits including the ethnography Gallery, and a collection of brass heirlooms. There are many striking antique jars in the Ceramics Gallery, while the Pre-history Gallery contains small replica of a typical bird’s-nest cave.
