KUCHING, Nov 30: Borneo Cultures Museum tickets will be available for online purchase starting tomorrow (Dec 1), says Minister of Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts Dato Sri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.
He said the launching of the new online platform to purchase the tickets is in line with the Sarawak government’s digitalisation and digital economy efforts through Post-Covid-19 Development Strategy (PCDS) 2030.
“In addition to the current ticket purchasing mechanism, where visitors are required to show their identity cards (IC) or passports upon making payments at the ticket counter, the public can access the Sarawak Museum Department Portal (museum.sarawak.gov.my) or Sarawak Government Portal (www.sarawak.gov.my) to purchase the admission tickets online,” he told a press conference at Riverside Majestic Hotel here today.
He said visitors can effortlessly browse through available museums online and securely purchase tickets from the comfort of their homes or while on the go.
According to him, upon purchasing a ticket, visitors are able to make payment through online banking, credit card and SPay Global e-wallet.
“Visitors will receive their QR code tickets instantly via email and Sarawak Government mobile app, and simply scan them for entry.
“This mechanism eliminates the need for visitors to stand in long queues or be limited by specific operating hours,” he added.
Abdul Karim said it also gives visitors the freedom to plan their visits according to their schedules, thereby enhancing the quality of their experience.
“This initiative aligns with the State government’s aspiration to position Sarawak as one of Malaysia’s top tourism destinations,” he said. — DayakDaily
