KUCHING, March 31: The number of visitors to the Borneo Cultures Museum has exceeded 30,000 since its opening to public on March 9.

To be more exact, Minister of Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts Dato Sri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said as of March 28, the total visitors were about 35,000.

He added, there were between 1,500 to 2,000 daily visiting this second-largest museum in Southeast Asia, located at the city centre of Kuching.

“Despite our borders are not really been opened, from this, you can see that Sarawakians have already been flocking to the Borneo Cultures Museum.

“And that reflects the kind of interest and passion Sarawakians have toward their own State’s heritage,” he said during Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony between Dayakdaily and Friends of Sarawak Museum (FoSM) at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) here today.

Abdul Karim said he was proud to see Sarawakians’ being appreciative toward heritage conservation and what the State has to offer. — Dayakdaily
